Snapshot History

  Race
  • With a total prizemoney of $25,000, the first edition of the Moir Stakes was staged on Saturday, October 23, 1976. The distance was 1000 metres, the race conducted under Weight-For-Age conditions.

  • The race had been originally scheduled for the previous year (1975), accompanying the Cox Plate as one of the features of the day. The race was abandoned after torrential rain during the day rendered the track unsafe for racing after the MV Cup and Cox Plate had been conducted. Staged on Cox Plate day until 2011, the Moir now resides in September and is conducted at night.

  • Granted Group 2 status in 1979, the race has also been known as the Schweppes Stakes (1996-2002, 2008-2011) and the Schweppervescence Stakes (2003-2007). Upgraded to Group 1 in 2013, the distance was amended to 1200m in 2007 before reverting to 1000m in 2015.

  • Total stakemoney for the race has continued to grow with the 2010 edition worth $300,000 and a decade on, the race is worth $750,000.
