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.
Sunlight (2018) won the Gr3 Quezette Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield before leading all the way to win this event in stylish fashion for the Tony McEvoy stable.
Recent Thoroughbred Club Stakes winners include Invincible Star (2017) and Hear The Chant (2016).
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.
