The Canterbury Stakes field is comprised of some genuinely talented sprinters, all usually quite well experienced over distances of 1300m or similar. As a major Group 1 event early in the Autumn Racing Carnival, the Canterbury Stakes field draws some of the top names in horse racing every year, and the competition for a top flight trophy is very intense.
