The Chatham Stakes is a Group 3 race run under Handicap conditions for sprinters at Flemington conducted by the Victoria Racing Club.
The Chatham Stakes is run over 1400m. It was first run in 1978 and was won by Sarsha's Choice.
The race was over the mile until 1985 then back to 1400m from 1986 onwards.
The Chatham Stakes was a Listed Race until 1986 then Group 3.
It is registered after a champion of the 1930s Chatham who won two Cox Plates, Epsoms and Doncaster.
