The Stutt Stakes was first run in 1934 as the Moonee Valley Stakes, however from 1990 onwards, it renamed in honour of a former chairman of the Moonee Valley Racing Club, Bill Stutt. Titanium was the first winner of the Stutt Stakes and since then the likes of Storm Queen, Red Anchor, Whobegotyou and Pierro have all won the race.

The fastest Stutt Stakes from the last 20 years was in 2007, when Barbaricus won in an impressive 1:36.03. The Holy One clocked 1:37.31 last year to win the race, while the course record over 1600m belongs to Lubicon (1:34.42).
