The CF Orr Stakes is a Group 1 event which is run at Caulfield in February each year during the Autumn Carnival in Melbourne.

The race is run under weight-for-age conditions over 1400 metres and carries prizemoney of $500,000.

The race also has its own claim to fame as being the first Group 1 race of the calendar year and shares the program at Caulfield with the Rubiton Stakes, Carlyon Cup and Blue Diamond Preludes.

It is contested by some of the best sprinter/milers in the country with the balance of the field made up of stayers resuming from their previous spring campaigns. Many of the runners enter the race fresh which makes it an interesting betting event.

The race was first run in 1925 over eight furlongs (1600m) as a Group 3 event and was won by The Night Patrol. It remained over that distance until 1957 when it was reduced to seven furlongs (1400m).

It was upgraded to Group 2 status in 1980 before becoming a Group 1 affair in 1993, the year Durbridge saluted the judge.

The winners’ list includes great names such as Black Caviar (2012), Typhoon Tracy (2010 & 2011), Lonhro (2004) and Redoute’s Choice (2000). Other past greats to have won the event include Surround (1977), Tobin Bronze (1967), Wenona Girl (1962) and Lord (1959 and 1960) and the 2018 winner Hartnell.

In the races history, two horses have won the event in three consecutive years – Manikato (1979, 1980, 1981) and Vo Rogue (1988, 1989, 1990).

While the sprinters have dominated the race over time, many good stayers have also tasted victory. Over the years, the list of stayers winning the event makes up a who’s who of Melbourne Cup fame. Saintly (1997), Jeune (1995), Let’s Elope (1992) and At Talaq (1987) are most recent examples and the list also includes former Cup winners such as Hyperno (1978), Rising Fast (1956) and Comic Court (1951).
