The first Caulfield Stakes took place in 1886 when it was won by Isonomy. The race was originally known as the Caulfield Stakes until 1997 when it was changed to Caulfield Stakes. Many Cox Plate contenders go through the Caulfield Stakes due to the similar race conditions and distance. Horses such as Tranquil Stakes (1942), Rising Fast (1954), Kingston Town (1981-82), Might And Power (1998) and Northerly (2001) all managed to achieve the Caulfield Stakes and Cox Plate double. Shaftesbury Avenue holds the record for the fastest Caulfield Stakes winning time since 1975, winning the race in 1 minute and 59.3 seconds in 1991.
