The Ladies Day Vase takes place on the second day of the three-day Caulfield spring racing carnival and generally attracts better than average mares where the better class gallopers are advantaged by the weighted conditions of the race.
A race like the Gr2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes, held the previous month at Flemington, is a typical lead-up event to the Ladies Day Vase. Runners from this event may continue on to a race like the upcoming Gr3 Inglis Mile at Moonee Valley on Gr1 WS Cox Plate day later in the month. Star Of Giselle (2012) & Lady Lynette (2009) have taken out the Ladies Day Vase & Inglis Mile double in recent years.
Quilate (2017) took out a F&M BM70 race over 1200m at Mornington before scoring a stylish victory in this event and recent Ladies Day Vase winners include Euro Angel (2016) and Miss Rose De Lago (2015).
Kaniana (6th in 2016) and Rocket Commander (2nd in 2016) went on to quinella the Gr3 Inglis Mile at Moonee Valley while Alaskan Rose (5th in 2016) finished third behind them.
