The Group 3 race attracts horses on way to big spring campaigns so the field always includes a high standard of horses competing for the $125,000 in prize money. The quality handicap conditions are designed to put each runner on an even playing field and make the contest as close and exciting as possible.

The Up and Coming Stakes is held on the same day as the Group 3 Warwick Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) for three-year-old fillies.
