The Stutt Stakes, which is named in honour of former Moonee Valley Racing Club chairman Bill Stutt, was first run in 1934. The race has been won by a number of champions throughout its rich history, including Storm Queen (1966), Red Anchor (1984), Zabeel (1989), Encosta De Lago (1996) and Whobegotyou (2008).

The Stutt Stakes is a great opportunity for punters from all walks of life to have a bet on the races. Due to its set-weight conditions, classier horses usually perform the best on race day. For that reason it can be easier to pick the winner than in other types, such as handicap races.
