The Thoroughbred Club Stakes is a Group 3 set weights & penalties race held each October at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $150,000 in prizemoney. The 2018 Thoroughbred Club Stakes resulted in a dead-heat between Flit and Ready Set Sail, with Meryl third.
Taking place on the first day of the Melbourne Racing Club's three-day spring carnival, the Thoroughbred Club Stakes features alongside the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Toorak Handicap and Group 1 Caulfield Stakes.

|2018 Winner:||Flit & Ready Set Sail (dead-heat)|
The Thoroughbred Club Stakes is a three-year-old fillies race that attracts moderate to handy fillies that generally don't figure in many of the big spring races ahead. Winners and placegetters are capable of picking up a lower quality fillies event during the Melbourne spring racing carnival, but rarely go on to win a major Group 1 race.
Flit (2019 DH), trained by James Cummings, and Ready Set Sail (2019 DH), trained by Mick Price, finished third and fourth respectively in 2YO Maiden events at both Bendigo (1100m) and Sale (1212m) before dead-heating in this event.
Recent Thoroughbred Club Stakes winners include Sunlight (2018) and Invincible Star (2017).
This race has not proven to be much of a guide to later spring feature races of late although Secret Agenda (2nd in 2015) managed to win the Gr3 Red Roses Stakes at Flemington during the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.
