The race takes its name from superstar horse Kingston Town. The legend of the turf won three Cox Plates amongst many other Group 1s. It was originally run as the STC Cup in 1948, with Columnist claiming victory.

The Kingston Town Stakes has been been a solid form race, with the most recent example being Avilius. The gelding won in 2018 and has since become a multiple Group 1 winner.

In 2019 Finche won the race in 2:04.42 but that is not the fastest winning time the Kingston Town Stakes over the last 20 years. That honour belongs to Stout Hearted, who in 2012 clocked 2:00.68 to claim victory.
