The Andrew Ramsden is run over 2800m at Flemington originates from a race that had its inaugural running back in 1964. Originally known as the Duke of Norfolk Stakes, and run over two-miles (3218m), the race was long considered the premier long distance race of the autumn program. Back then it was named following a visit to Flemington by the 16th Duke of Norfolk, Bernard Fitzalan-Howard, a keen racing enthusiast.

In 2019 the VRC announced that the winner of the Andrew Ramsden would be granted ballot exemption for entry in the Lexus Melbourne Cup – the Golden Ticket.
