Notable winners of the Vinery Stud Stakes include English Wonder (1983), Centaurea (1985), Research (1989), Slight Chance (1993), Saleous (1996), Champagne (1998), Special Harmony (2004), Serenade Rose (2006), Miss Finland (2007), Mosheen (2012) and Lucia Valentina Horseform (2014).

Historically the most prevalent form leading into the Vinery Stud Stakes has been via the Coolmore Classic or the Keith Nolan (Kembla Grange) Classic.

The VRC Oaks form has been sensational over the years. From 1989 onwards Research, Slight Chance, Northwood Plume, Saleous, Special Harmony, Hollow Bullet, Serenade Rose, Miss Finland, Faint Perfume, Mosheen all won both races.

Mirjulisa Lass is the only horse in recent years to win the Vinery Stud Stakes after starting in a non-black type race the outing prior.

The Storm Queen/ATC Oaks double has only been done six times – Sheraco (1982), Research (1989), Alcove (1994), Danendri (1997), Serenade Rose (2006), Heavenly Glow (2008).

Miss Finland won the Golden Slipper and the Storm Queen in consecutive years becoming the only horse to achieve that.

In 1989 Research won this race and then would take out the Derby and the Oaks all within the space of 11 days.

The 2016 Vinery Stud Stakes was won by Single Gaze Horseform for Nick Olive from Valley Girl with Happy Hannah third.
