The first CF Orr Stakes was run in 1925 when it was won by a horse named 1925. The CF Orr Stakes has been held at a variety of different racecourse including Williamstown Racecourse, Moonee Valley Racecourse, Flemington Racecourse and Sandown Racecourse. While the race began as a weight-for-age race, it was run under handicap conditions for three years from 1943-1945 before reverting back to the original conditions in 1946. The CF Orr Stakes was originally run over a distance of eight furlongs (1600m) and was officially changed to today’s 1,400 metres in 1973.

Horses that run in the CF Orr Stakes have often come via races such as the Group 2 Australia Stakes. Those that perform well in the CF Orr Stakes may then go on to run in the Group 2 St George Stakes and the Group 1 Futurity Stakes later in the Autumn Carnival at Caulfield Racecourse.

Notable horses to have won the CF Orr Stakes include Heroic (1927), High Caste (1940), Flight (1946), Comic Court (1951), Rising Fast (1956), Lord (1959-60), Wenona Girl (1962), Tobin Bronze (1967), Leilani (1975), Surround (1977), Manikato (1979-81), Vo Rogue (188-90), Jeune (1995), Saintly (1997), Redoute’s Choice (2000), Lonhro (2004), Elvstroem (2005), El Segundo (2007) and Typhoon Tracy ( 2010-11).
