Run and won and Randwick Racecourse, Bondi Stakes Day is held in late October on then same date Melbourne hosts the coveted $5 million W.S. Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.

From 2021, Bondi Stakes Day also features the $2 million The Invitation for fillies and mares.

The winner of the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) held a fortnight earlier is exempt from Bondi Stakes ballot and Peltzer (2020) was the first to do the double.

The Stan Fox Stakes – Bondi Stakes double was also completed the following spring by Hilal (2021).
