A Grade III event raced in late August/early September, it is open to horses age three and older and is contested at a distance of one mile (8 furlongs) on turf. Inaugurated in 1974 as a stakes race on dirt for two-year-old fillies, in 1975 is was made open to fillies and mares. In 1980, the race was converted to a handicap event on turf which was open to horses age three and older. An earlier version of the Red Bank Stakes was run in 1885 as a six-furlong race for two-year-olds. It was won by A. J. Cassatt's, The Bard.

Since inception the race has been contested at various distances. Following heavy rains, the 2003 race was switched to the dirt track. The Red Bank Handicap was run in two divisions in 1984 and 1985.
