The Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is a Group 3 race held during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. It is a race for two-year-old fillies under set weight plus penalties conditions and offers $150,000 in prize money. Held at Flemington Racecourse, it covers a distance of 1200m and tends to attract handy sprinters from across the state. It is raced alongside the Group 2 Blamey Stakes.
The event has gone by many names over the years, from the Bloodhorse Breeders Plate (1971-1990) to the Bloodhorse Breeders Stakes (1991-2000). From its inception in 1971 to 1995, this event was staged over 1400m, but in 1996 it was reduced to its present distance of 1200m. Between 1980 and 1998 it was a Group 2, before being down-graded to Group 3 status in 1999.
