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 Blue Diamond Stakes at the same track in a fortnight. Lyre (2019), Catchy (2017), Earthquake (2014) and Alinghi (2004) are the most recent fillies to capture the Blue Diamond Stakes after winning this race.

Outstanding 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 provides a clear advantage to the better fillies engaged.

Lyre (2019) took out a 2YF Maiden race over 1105m at Sale before finishing strongly to win this event in classy style for the Anthony Freedman yard.

Recent Blue Diamond Prelude Fillies winners include Enbihaar (2018) and Catchy (2017).
