The first Tramway Quality Handicap was run in 1986 when it was won by a horse named Burrilda. The Tramway Quality Handicap was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of Equine Influenza in Australia. The race is suited to horses that have performed well in the Show County Quality a fortnight earlier.

Horses that run well in the Tramway Quality Handicap often go on to run in races such as the Group 2 Crystal Mile on WS Cox Plate Day and the Group 1 Epsom Handicap.

The Tramway Handicap has changed location multiple times between Rosehill Gardens, Warwick Farm and its current home Royal Randwick. The Tramway Quality Handicap was given listed status in 1978, Group 3 status in 1984 and Group 2 status following the 2013 edition. Since the race distance was rounded down to 1400m from 7 furlongs in 1972, it has only changed distance for two years, 2000 and 2001 (1350m and 1300m respectively) and has remained at 1400m since 2002.

Notable horses to have won the Tramway Quality Handicap include Shaftesbury Avenue (1990), Peruzzi (1996), Galactic Valley (1997), Mr Innocent (2000), Primus (2006) and Rangirangdoo (2009).
