The Tulloch Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 1 The BMW and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes on the final day of Rosehill's three-day Golden Slipper Festival during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

The Tulloch Stakes is held one week before the Gr1 ATC Australian Derby at Randwick and gives three-year-old colts & geldings a final hit out at 2000m in preparation for the extra 400 metres of the Derby the following week.
The last horse to win the Tulloch Stakes & ATC Derby double was Starcraft (2004), while Philippi (2013) finished runner-up in the Derby after winning this event.
A race like the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes at Rosehill provides a good lead-up to the Tulloch Stakes and Hauraki (2015) finished runner-up in the Phar Lap Stakes before winning here.
Typically assembling a field of more than handy types rather than superstars, good horses such as Ivory's Irish (1995), Mahogany (1994) and Durbridge (1991) were all successful in this race before going on to win the Derby.
Jon Snow (2017) ran third in the Gr1 New Zealand Derby over 2400m at Ellerslie in New Zealand before crossing the Tasman to win this event in classy style and recent Tulloch Stakes winners include Old North (2016) and Hauraki (2015).
