The Lord Reims Stakes is named after former tough stayer Lord Reims and is the first group race of the autumn racing carnival in Adelaide, providing the ideal lead up race for those horses intending to tackle the upcoming Adelaide Cup over 3200m on the Labour Day holiday.

The last galloper to take out the Lord Reims Stakes & Adelaide Cup double in the same year was Apache King (2001).

This race will typically assemble a field of predominantly handy local stayers with Adelaide Cup aspiritions and in recent years Rialya (2nd in 2012), Capecover (3rd in 2010) and Lacey Underall (4th in 2008) have all placed in this race on the way to winning the Adelaide Cup.

Etah James (2018) ran fifth in a Fillies & Mares BM78 race over 2100m at Sandown in Victoria before heading to South Australia to score an easy victory in this event and recent Lord Reims Stakes winners include Master Of Arts (2017) and Signoff (2016).
