Hydahban won the first edition of the Stan Fox Stakes in 1975. Back then it was classed as a “Principal race”, however, from 1996 onwards it has been rated as a Group 2. The race has also spent time at both Warwick Farm and Rosehill Racecourse, but it returned to Randwick in 2019.

Some great horses have won the race including 1995 Cox Plate winner Octagonal, two-time Caulfield Stakes winner Lonhro and more recently Stradbroke Handicap winner Impending. Jockey James McDonald has had great success in the race over recent years, winning it on board Tarka in 2018 and Impending in 2016.

In 2019, Colada set the 1500m Randwick track record with a stunning 1:27.43. The next best 1500m time in the race over the last 20 years belongs to Gold Standard, who clocked 1:28.46 in 2017.
