The race was first run as the Chirnside Stakes in 1970, with Regal Vista claiming victory. In 2000 it was renamed the Schillaci Stakes after superstar sprinter and multiple Group 1 winner Schillaci.

A number of great horses have won the Schillaci Stakes over the years, including Mahogany, Miss Andretti and the legendary Black Caviar. In fact, Black Caviar is one of just two horses to win the race on multiple occasions, the other being Street Ruffian.

Trekking clocked 1:02.32 to win the Schillaci Stakes in 2019, which was the fastest time the race has seen since it changed to 1100m back in 2015. Surprisingly the fastest 1000m time in the Schillaci in the last 20 years doesn’t belong to Black Caviar, it was actually recorded by 2009 winner Lucky Secret (0:55.97)
