The race takes its name from one of the greats of the track, Paris Lane. In 1994 he won the Caulfield Cup, Mackinnon Stakes, and also finished second in the Melbourne Cup.

Some decent horses have won the Paris Lane Stakes over the years. Gathering claimed victory in 2010, while Fawkner, who won multiple Group 1s over his career, won the race in 2012.

Rich Itch ran 1:22.67 to win the Paris Lane Stakes in 2019 but the fastest time in the race over the last 20 years actually came in 2018. That year, Eckstein clocked 1:22.19 to beat Spanner Head and Plein Ciel.
