The first running of the Sheraco Stakes was back in 1998, with Patou saluting. It has only been classed as a Group 2 since 2018, which was the year Invincibella claimed victory.

Two horses have won the race twice, with champion More Joyous claiming victory in 2010 and 2012, and Catkins doing winning in 2014 and 2015. The race is named after 1982 Australian Oaks winner Sheraco.

As of 2013, the race has been run over 1200m instead of 1100m. Since then, Catkins has clocked the fastest Sheraco Stakes time, recording a 1:09.14 in 2015. 2019 winner Mizzy went close to that time in the most recent edition of the race, crossing the line in 1:09.92.
