Run over a distance of 1,200 metres, the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is held as part of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is run under set-weight plus penalty conditions and is open to two-year old fillies only. The race is worth a total of $150,000 in prize money.

The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes was first run in 1971 when a horse named Gossiper claimed victory. The race was initially known as the Bloodhorse Breeders Plate until 1991 when it was renamed the Bloodhorse Breeders Stakes. The race became known as today’s Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes in 2001.

The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes was originally run over a distance of seven furlongs before being changed to 1,400 metres in 1973 to mark the introduction of the metric system. The race was first run over 1,200 metres in 1996 and has remained the same ever since. While the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes was a Principal Race at first, the race was given Group 2 status from 1980-1998. The race was downgraded to a Group 3 in 1999.

The race is held on one of the biggest day of racing during the Melbourne autumn and share’s its program with the Group 1 Australian Cup, Group 1 Newmarket Handicap, Group 2 Blamey Stakes, Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, Group 2 AV Kewney Stakes, Group 3 Matron Stakes, Listed Moomba Plate and Listed VRC March Stakes.

Notable winners of the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes include Red Cat (1977), Twining (1987), Apollo Wonder (1990), Dama De Noche (2001) and Triple Asset (2011).
