The Tramway Stakes generally attracts moe than handy types rather than the upper echelon and a race such as the Gr3 Show County Quality is typically a good lead-up race.

In recent times Bank Robber (2008), Primus (2006) and Sportsman (2003) won the Show County Quality before winning this race and number of horses have placed in both races over the past few years.

Of late, the Tramway Stakes has proven to be a good guide to future big race winners at Randwick during the spring, with Sincero (2011) winning the Gr1 George Main Stakes and Secret Admirer (2nd in 2011) claiming the Gr1 Epsom Handicap.

Steps in Time (10th in 2012) and Thankgodyou’rehere (3rd in 2011) won the Gr3 Bill Ritchie Handicap after contesting this event.

Top galloper Rangirangdoo (2009) ran second in the Gr1 Epsom Handicap at Randwick after winning this race and he then travelled to Melbourne to win the Gr2 Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley on WS Cox Plate day.

Comin' Through (2018) resumed from a spell to score an impressive victory in this event for the Chris Waller stable at Rosehill. The Fastnet Rock gelding took out the Gr1 Doomben Cup at Doomben racecourse in Brisbane before his spell.

Recent Tramway Stakes winners include Happy Clapper (2017) and Hauraki (2016).
