The Hayes, Hayes and Dabernig stable has had great success in the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes in recent years. They have trained the winner twice in the last four years, with Nomothaj claiming victory in 2017 and Madeenaty crossing the line first in 2016. Jockey Stephen Baster has also impressed, riding the winner of the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes twice over the last three years.

Mildred clocked 0:58.76 to win the race in 2019, however, it is not the fastest 1000m time the race has seen over the last 20 years. That belongs to I Got Chills, who recorded a 0:56.48 back in 2005
