Academy Star won the 1968 Sydney Stakes, which was the very first running of the race. At that, it was a Principal race, then in 1978, it was classed as a List race. In 2018 it was graded as Group 3.

Two horses have been able to win the Sydney Stakes in consecutive years. Diamon Benny did it in the late 1980s and Famous Sheamus claimed victory in 2012 and 2013.

The race has changed distances a number of times but as of 2017, it has been run over 1200m. Since then, the fastest winning time belongs to In Her Time, who ran 1:08.26 when she won the Sydney Stakes
