The Coolmore Stud Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Victoria Derby, Mackinnon Stakes and Myer Classic.

The first Coolmore Stud Stakes took place in the year 1933 when it was won by Shakuni.

The race began as a race for two-year-olds and took place in the autumn. In 1969 the Coolmore Stud Stakes was changed to a three-year-old race and was moved to the spring carnival. The Coolmore Stud Stakes was run in September and was a Group 2 race until 2006 when it was moved to Victoria Derby Day and given its Group 1 status.

The race was known as the Ascot Vale Stakes until 2007 when it became the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

The Coolmore Stud Stakes was not held for three years from 1966-1968.
