Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne

The Blue Diamond Prelude Fillies is an 1100 race for two-year-old fillies only that serves as the ideal lead-up race for those fillies who might be good enough to tackle the males in the upcoming Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes at the same track in a fortnight.

Classy fillies Guelph (2013), Samaready (2012), Rostova (2009), Alinghi (2004), Halibery (2003) and Courtza (1999) have all won this event and the level weights playing field gives a clear advantage to the classier fillies engaged.

The Fillies Prelude is held on the same day as the male version of the race, the Blue Diamond Prelude - C&G, and Earthquake (2014) and Alinghi (2004) are the most recent fillies to win this race and then take out the Blue Diamond Stakes.

Enbihaar (2018) tasted success in a 2YO race over 1000m at Morphettville Parks in Adelaide before winning this event and recent Blue Diamond Prelude Fillies winners include Catchy (2017) and Samara Dancer (2016).
