Upgraded to Group 3 status for the 2013/2014 racing season, and then to Group 2 for the 2015/2016 season, the Guy Walter Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes and Group 2 Surround Stakes.

Formerly raced as the Wiggle Stakes, the race was renamed the Guy Walter Stakes in 2014 in honour of popular Sydney trainer Guy Walter, who passed away suddenly in May of that year.

The Guy Walter Stakes is a mares only race that typically assembles a smart field of females with the classier types hard to beat due to the weighted conditions of the race. The Gr2 Breeders Classic is generally the best guide to this race and both Catkins (2014) &Steps In Time (2012-13) have taken out the Breeders Classic & Guy Walter Stakes double for the past three years.

Upcoming feature mares races like the Gr1 Coolmore Classic and Gr1 Queen of The Turf Stakes at Rosehill will more than likely be on the agenda for mares contesting this race, and Appearance (4th in 2013) managed to take out the Coolmore Classic & Queen Of The Turf Stakes double after running fourth in the Guy Walter Stakes beforehand.

Some classy types have won this race over the years including outstanding mare Hot Danish (2008-09), plus talented gallopers Doubting (2007) and Bonanova (1999).

Dixie Blossoms (2017-2018) was resuming from a spell when she won this race for the second year in a row and recent Guy Walter Stakes winners include Solicit (2016) and Danesiri (2015).
