– This event has proven to be a good indicator for the WS Cox Plate, with Sunline winning the George Main Stakes before going on to win the Cox Plate in 1999 and Filante coming second in both events in 1996 and 1997. In 2002, Defier won the George Main Stakes before coming second in the Cox Plate.

– The majority of winners have been Male horses, with 2010 winner More Joyous the first mare to win the George Main Stakes since Ma Chiquita in 1986.

– In one interesting fact, the race favourite has won this event three times during the last five years; with Sincero winning in 2011, More Joyous in 2010, and Racing to Win in 2006.

– The George Main Stakes was named after George Main, former chairman of the Australian Jockey Club.

– The best indicator events for the George Main Stakes are the Warwick Stakes, Tramway Quality, Theo Marks, and Chelmsford Stakes, although horses may also come from a number of other events.

– Four horses have managed to win more than one George Main Stakes; Shannon in 1946-47, Count Radiant in 1964-65, Regal Rhythm in 1967-68, and Kingston Town in 1981-82.

– The record time for this event was posted by Racing to Win in 2006, who lived up to his name by coming home with a time of 1:33.75.

– The late trainer TJ Smith is the most successful trainer in the history of this event, winning an amazing eleven times during his illustrious career.
