Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the Sweet Embrace Stakes is held as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The Sweet Embrace Stakes is run under set weight conditions and is open to two-year-old fillies only. The race is worth a total of $175,000 in prize money.

The Sweet Embrace Stakes was first run in 1979 when it was won by a horse named Ingenue. The race was initially run as a Listed race but was upgraded to a Group 3 in 1987. While it was originally called the Sweet Embrace Stakes, the race was called the Lone Star Steakhouse and Saloon Stakes in 1999. The race is named after Sweet Embrace, who won the 1967 Golden Slipper.

Fillies that run in the Sweet Embrace Stakes are often aiming towards a run in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper, with the winner of the race gaining automatic entry into the Golden Slipper field.

Notable Sweet Embrace Stakes winners include Dark Eclipse (1980), Skating (1992), All The Chat (1997), Ha Ha (2001), Carry On Cutie (2005), Crystal Lily (2010) and Shared Reflections (2011).
