The Futurity Stakes is one of the more prominent weight-for-age races of the Caulfield autumn racing carnival and the 1400m distance is attractive to a variety of gallopers, including strong sprinters and quality middle distance types, which assures a top field is assembled each year.

Sprinters in this event may come via the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes which is a weight-for-age race at Caulfield in February, and staying types may consider heading on to the Gr1 Australian Cup at Flemington on Super Saturday of Racing in March.

In recent times Moment Of Change (2014), All Too Hard (2013) & Typhoon Tracy (2010) have both taken out the CF Orr Stakes & Futurity Stakes double, while Niconero (2009) was the last galloper to take out the Futurity Stakes & Australian Cup double.

Some quality thoroughbreds have saluted in this event over the years including More Joyous (2011), Fields Of Omagh (2006), Testa Rossa (2000), Encounter (1998), Schillaci (1993 & 1995), Redelva (1991) and Zeditave (1989). The Futurity Stakes is a race for good horses and is always one of the highlights of the Melbourne autumn racing carnival.

Classy Peter Moody trained galloper Dissident travelled to Sydney to win the Gr1 All Aged Stakes at Randwick following his third placing in this event.

Turn Me Loose (2016) ran fourth in the CF Orr Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield before taking out this event in stylish fashion and recent Futurity Stakes winners include Suavito (2015) and Moment Of Change (2014).
