Winners and Past Results for the Naturalism Stakes.

The Naturalism Stakes is a Group 3 race and is held under the aegis of the Melbourne Racing Club every year in September during the spring racing carnival.

The Naturalism Stakes is a 2000 metre event held at Caulfield Racecourse under open handicap conditions, with a purse of $150,000 reserved for the winners.

Hosted since 1983, the inaugural winner of the Naturalism Stakes was Mevron Boy. From 1983 to 2008 it was run as a Listed Race, after which it was granted Group 3 status for the running of the race in 2009.

It is run on Underwood Stakes Day and shares the day with other Group 3 races which include the Thousand Guineas Prelude and How Now Stakes.

The Naturalism Stakes is a great guide to races such as the 2400 metre Group 1 Caulfield Cup held at Caulfield by the Melbourne Racing Club and the prestigious 2040 metre Group 1 Cox Plate held at Moonee Valley Racecourse. Other major races that horses may move on to include the 2000 metre Group 1 Yalumba Stakes held on Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield Racecourse and the 2500 metre Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup held at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day.
