The CF Orr Stakes is a Group 1 race for open class sprinters conducted by the Melbourne Racing Club at Caulfield.
The CF Orr Stakes was first run in 1925 and was won by The Night Patrol.
The CF Orr Stakes is run over 1400m under Weight For Age conditions. It was worth $500,000 in 2020.
It was a Principal race up to 1979, then Group 2 to 1992 before being upgraded to G1 from 1993 and beyond.
Has been run at all of Victoria's racecourses at one stage or another. Sandown conducted it the most before heading to Caulfield in 1997.
The race has been won some champion sprinters like Black Caviar as well as Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup horses coming back to the races like At Talaq.
That said the last Cox Plate winner to return to win this was Maldivian in 2009 and Saintly the last Cup winner in 1997.
Black Caviar's only start beyond 1200m in her 25 run career came in the CF Orr Stakes when she won easily.
Peter Moody won 5 times in 6 years from 2010.
Females have only won 8 times in nearly 40 years but taken 4 of the last 11.
