The Rubiton Stakes is a Group 2 sprint race that takes place annually in February at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria. This race is run over a distance of 1100m under set weight & penalties conditions and offers prize money of $200,000. The 2020 Rubiton Stakes was won by Anaheed from Bold Star and All Too Royal in third place.
The Rubiton Stakes is held on Group 1 CF Orr Stakes day, the second biggest raceday of the Melbourne Racing Club's autumn carnival, behind Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes day. Formerly a Group 3 event, the race was upgraded to Group 2 status for the 2013/2014 racing season.

The Rubiton Stakes is a good quality weight-for-age sprint race for the time of the year and has been won by some talented types throughout the years. Classy gallopers such as Eagle Falls (2012), Here De Angels (2010 & 2008), Flavour (1999), Spartacus (1997), Schillaci (1995), Redelva (1991) and Zeditave (1989) have all won this event.
Quality gallopers resuming from a spell are suited to the Rubiton Stakes. It provides an attractive proposition for talented sprinters heading towards upcoming feature sprints during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival. Above average in-form types can also test themselves in this event by tackling better class horses.
The Rubiton Stakes offers the ideal tune-up for the Group 1 Lightning Stakes at Flemington, or Caulfield's premier autumn sprint, the upcoming Group 1 Oakleigh Plate. Eagle Falls (7th in 2011) won the Oakleigh Plate at his next start, while Avenue (2nd in 2011) finished runner-up in the same race. Highly rated sprinter Lankan Rupee (2014) was the last galloper to claim the Rubiton Stakes & Oakleigh Plate double.
Smart weight-for-age sprinters contesting this race might also go on and tackle the prestigious Group 1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley in March, as it is run under the same conditions but over 1200 metres.
Anaheed (2020) resumed from a spell in outstanding style to score a scintillating victory in this event for the Peter & Paul Snowden stable.
