Previous Winners

The Pago Pago Stakes was first run in 1978 as a Principal race when Cheval De Volee triumphed over the 1,200 metres stretch. The following year the event was elevated to Group 3 status, and then in 1987 it became recognised as a Group 2 race. Originally Pago Pago Stakes was registered under the race name the Pago Pago Quality Handicap, but the title of the race was changed in 1985 to the Pago Pago Stakes by which it is still known.
