Blue Diamond Stakes Winners

The Blue Diamond Stakes was first run in 1971 as a Principal race over six furlongs with Tolerance the original champion. Two years after its inception, the race converted to the metric system, and so was recognised as a 1,200 metre event. In 1980, the Blue Diamond Stakes found the ultimate recognition in progressing to a Group 1 race.

Below is a list of the winners of the Blue Diamond Stakes since its 1971 inaugural run.
