The race is named after Edward Manifold who played a major role in Australian horse racing and was a long-time member of the Victoria Racing Club. It was first run in 1932 and won by Dutchi. A number of great horses have since won the Edward Manifold Stakes, including Tranquil Star, Emancipation and Alinghi.

Moonlight maid ran 1:36.80 to win the Edward Manifold Stakes in 2019, however, the fastest 1600m time in the race over the last 20 years belongs to Badawiya who clocked 1:36.40 back in 2015. It is worth nothing 2004 winner Alinghi, who ran 1:36.41 despite the race being 1610m.
