The CS Hayes Stakes generally attracts above average three-year-olds and the set weights & penalty conditions of the race typically favours the better performed gallopers going around during the autumn. Colts & geldings contesting this race may consider going on to stronger 3yo races like the Gr1 Australian Guineas on Super Saturday of Racing at Flemington or the Gr2 Alister Clarke Stakes at Moonee Valley, both races held in March.

Dash For Cash (2002) was the last galloper to win the CS Hayes Stakes & Australian Guineas in the same year while Lieutenant (2005) took out the most recent CS Hayes Stakes & Alistair Clarke Stakes double. Palentino (2011) went on to win the Australian Guineas after finishing runner-up in this race.

Grunt (2018) captured a 3YO BM64 event over 1600m at Morphettville in Adelaide before heading to melbourne to win this event in stylish fashion and recent CS Hayes Stakes winners include Hey Doc (2017) and Tavaci (2016).
