The first Testa Rossa Stakes was run in 2009, with the Mick Price-trained galloper Rightfully Yours claiming victory. In recent years, jockey Dwayne Dunn has had reasonable success in the race, winning twice in the last four years.

The race takes its name from legendary horse Testa Rossa. He won multiple Group 1s including the Futurity Stakes and Emirates Stakes.

Renewal ran 1:09.30 over the Caulfield 1200m to win the Testa Rossa Stakes in 2019 but the fastest time in the history of the race belongs to Amaethon. Trained by Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Amaethon clocked 1:08.27 to win the 2011 edition of the race.
