Winners and Past Results for the George Moore Stakes.

The George Moore Stakes is held under the aegis of the Brisbane Racing Club. It is a Group 3 race held annually at Doomben Racecourse Brisbane.

The George Moore Stakes is open for 3 year old horses and upwards. The quality handicap race is run over a distance of 1200 metres with $128,000 reserved for the winner out of a total of $200,000 in prize money.

Earlier, the George Moore Stakes was known as the Summer Stakes. The event is a part of the popular Brisbane's Summer Series. The Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate is held on the same day as the George Moore Stakes in December. The 2011 title went to Adebisi, who snatched victory from Latin News and Spirit Of Boom.

The George Moore Stakes has switched status as a Listed Race and Group 3 Race three times. The event was first run in 1979 with Princess Reichen recorded as the first winner. Between 1979 and 1982, it was a Group 3 race, but was downgraded to a Listed Race between 1983 and 2000. Since 2001 it has retained its Group 3 status.

The race has been held under several different names over the years which include the XXXX Stakes between 1979 and 1986, Thornhill Park Stakes in 1987, L J Williams Quality Handicap, and the Summer Stakes.

Since 2007, it has been held as the George Moore Stakes.

Over the years, reasonably talented sprinters have won this event especially those in form during that time of the season. Mirraben held onto the trophy for three consecutive years between 1987 and 1989. Horses may fancy their chances in the George Moore Stakes after an outing in the Group 1 Salinger Stakes over 1200 M or the Group 2 The Age Classic also over the same distance at Flemington earlier in the season.

In 2005, Takeover Target used both the events as a warm up with a fourth and seventh place before a spate of victories beginning with the George Moore Stakes. He moved on to win the Doomben Stakes, and Group 1 Lightning Stakes during the season. Notable sprinters to win recently include Adebisi in 2011, Burdekin Blues in 2009 and Friendly Embrace in 2008. Prior to winning the 2011 George Moore Stakes, Adebisi won a BM90 over 1000 metres at the Eagle Farm track.

The 2010 George Moore Stakes was not run.
