The TL Baillieu Handicap was first run in 2010 when it was won by Skilled. The race is often targeted by two-year-olds that have not made the field for the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on the same day. Horses that run in the TL Baillieu Handicap will often continue on to races such as the Group 1 AJC Champagne Stakes at Randwick later in the autumn carnival.
The TL Baillieu Handicap is run on Golden Slipper Day and takes place alongside the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes, Group 1 The BMW, Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes, Group 2 Tulloch Stakes, Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes and Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes.
The TL Baillieu Handicap has been won by Skilled (2010) and Do You Think (2011).
