The George Moore Stakes is a handy sprint race for this time of year and typically attracts the best available local sprinters going around at the time due to the high prizemoney on offer and the handicap conditions of the event.

The race has been won by some good horses at various times, including quality types such as Takeover Target (2005) and Chief De Beers (1994 & 1997), and is held during the Brisbane summer carnival which hosts a number of listed stakes races throughout the months of December and January.

Monsieur Gustave (2017) took out the Listed Keith Noud Stakes over 1200m at Ipswich before winning this event in a thrilling finish and recent George Moore Stakes winners include Most Important (2016) and Didntcostalot (2015).
