The Blue Diamond Stakes is one of the feature 2YO races in Australia held at Caulfield racecourse each year over 1200m. The race is at Group 1 level and boasts a total prize pool of $1.5m (up from $1m in 2015).
There are two main lead up races with the Blue Diamond Prelude for Colts and Geldings as well as the Blue Diamond Preview for Fillies. Both races are contested at Caulfield over similar conditions.
Blue Diamond winners will often contest the Golden Slipper at Rosehill although winners haven’t faired well in recent history with Sepoy (2011) the last runner to do the double.
The 2018 Blue Diamond Stakes will be run on Saturday the 24th of February, 2018 at Caulfield racecourse.
