The Up And Coming Stakes is run on the same day as both the Group 2 Warwick Stakes and the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes for three-year-old fillies. There are also two other Group 3 events on the day, the Toy Show Quality (1300m) and the Show County Quality (1200m).

The first Up And Coming Stakes was run in 1988 when it was won by a horse named Star Watch. The Up And Coming Stakes is suited to horses that have just returned to racing after a winter spell or have competed in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes the week prior. The Up And Coming Stakes was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of Equine Influenza in Australia. The Up and Coming Stakes was held at Warwick Farm prior to the 2014 edition.

The field is often made up of horses that have proved successful during their two-year-old campaign. Horses that run in the Up And Coming Stakes often go on to run in races such as the Group 3 Spring Stakes and the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes in September.

Notable horses to have won the Up And Coming Stakes include Mahogany (1993), General Nediym (1997), Testa Rossa (1999), Exceed And Excel (2003), Fastnet Rock (2004), Snitzel (2005), Court Command (2006) and Dreamscape (2008).
