– 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.

– 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.

– 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.
