The Zeditave Stakes is held during the Summer Racing Carnival, usually towards the end of January. It has become an Australia Day staple recently, and is often used as a springboard for the Autumn Racing Carnival.

It is raced over 1200m under set weights plus penalties conditions. Restricted to three year olds, the Zeditave Stakes pays a fairly lucrative $150,000.

Most horses targeting the Zeditave Stakes do so as a lead-up race to later events during the Melbourne Autumn Carnival, of which many major days are hosted at Caulfield Racecourse.

There are few races to watch for form guidance prior to the Zeditave Stakes, and many three year olds contest the race first-up or following a start in a non black-type event.

The Zeditave Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 in 2013, previously having held listed status. At the same time it moved to its own slot as a feature event, whereas in the past it was held on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

The Zeditave Stakes is named after the 1988 Blue Diamond Stakes winner Zeditave.

Notable Zeditave Stakes winners include Almurtajaz (1989), Street Talk (1996), Destruction Point (1999), Not A Single Doubt (2005) and Not Listenin’Tome (2014).

2016 Zeditave Stakes Field

The Zeditave Stakes field is usually comprised of a fairly decent range of sprinters, mostly hailing from Melbourne stables. Sometimes the odd runner from Sydney stables or elsewhere will make the journey down to contest the Zeditave Stakes field, and possibly stay for the Autumn Carnival.
