The Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) is run over 1000m under Set Weights and Penalty conditions. It was worth $160,000 in 2020.
It is traditionally run on Australia Day weekend. The Colts and Geldings Division of the Preview is a Listed Race.
The race has toggled between Listed and Group 3 status. Was Listed until 1987, then G3 up 2005 before back to Listed until 2014. From 2015 it has been a G3 race again.

Midnight Fever in 1987 and Miracles Of Life in 2013 have done the Preview (F)/Blue Diamond double.
In 2005 the race was voided when multiples horse's gates opened prematurely.
