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).
