Boniform won the very first running of the Breeders Plate, which was way back in 1906. Since then, the race has seen some great winners, including Gold Rod, Sky High, Sebring and Pierro.

Gai Waterhouse has seen great success in the Breeders Plate over the last 10 years. She trained the winner on four straight occasions between 2011 and 2014.

In 2019, Global Quest recorded a decent 0:58.22 to win the Breeders Plate but it wasn’t the fastest time the race has seen over the last 20 years. The Chris Waller-trained Performer holds that honour, clocking 0:56.82 in 2017.
