The Theo Marks Stakes is a handicap event over 1300 metres that serves as a good follow up race to the Gr3 Concorde Stakes held earlier in the carnival and Theo Marks Stakes entrants will most likely head towards the Randwick carnival and races such as the Gr2 Shannon Stakes and Group 1 Epsom Hcp, as they are a natural progession in both conditions and distance.

The Chris Waller trained Winx (2015) was the last galloper to win the Theo Marks Stakes & Epsom Handicap double.

The Theo Marks Stakes has been won by some more than handy types over the years including More Joyous (2010), Defier (2002), Shogun Lodge (2001), Adam (1999) and Catelan Opening (1997). The talented galloper Racing to Win (2006) won the Theo Marks & Epsom Handicap double and then returned to win the Theo Marks Stakes again three years later.

Arcadia Queen (2019) resumed from a winter spell to win this race in outstanding fashion for the Chris Waller stable.

Recent Theo Marks Stakes winners include Home Of The Brave (2018) and Deploy (2017).
