The event is the first quality handicap race of the season held on the same day as the Victoria Derby in Melbourne . Many horses move on from the Asian Beau Stakes to the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes and RJ Peters Stakes held at the same track later during the carnival. Quality gallopers also have an eye on the Group 1 $1 Million Railway Stakes held three weeks later. Lucky Gray, the 2011 winner of the Asian Beau, won a BM74+ Handicap event over 1400 meters prior to lifting the trophy.

Held at the beginning of the spring racing carnival, the Asian Beau Stakes provides a major form guide for punters to follow for the rest of the season.

Nitro Lad won the inaugural event which was known as the WATC Kankama Quality Stakes. It was also known as the WATC Belmont Community Quality Stakes, WATC Budget Quality Stakes, and as the Asian Beau Stakes since 1995.

The event was a listed race until 1999 when it was upgraded to Group 3 status. Among the notable runners to win the Asian Beau Stakes are Power Prince in 1987, Ableson in 1988, Future Edition in 1991, Lynsted Lad in 1995, Fair Alert in 2000, Wild Target in 2005, and Luckygray in 2011.
