The Victoria Handicap was first held in 1985 when it was won by a horse named Mendeara Etoile. The race is usually contested by horses that have run in races such as the Listed Moonee Valley Quality in Melbourne the month before. Those horses that run well in the Victoria Handicap will often go on to run in the Listed Anniversary Vase at Caulfield or the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes in Sydney.

The Victoria Handicap is held alongside the Group 3 Easter Cup and the Listed Galilee Series Final in Melbourne. It attracts mostly local gallopers, with much of the interstate talent attending the bigger race days in Sydney at this time of the autumn.
