The inaugural National Futurity was run in 1964 as an event for bitches to complement the National Derby which had begun a year earlier. The first winner of the National Futurity was Cultured Girl.

Like the Derby, the National Futurity called Harold Park home in the late 1980s when Wentworth Park underwent a revamp, and it also moved to The Gardens in Newcastle from 2009 until 2015.

Upon its return to Wentworth Park, it was Hunter Valley mentor Jason Mackay who took out the race with Zipping Midge.

Some of the brilliant females to have won the Futurity include Promises Free (1982), Winifred Bale (1983), Turbo Top (1984), and Striker Light (2017).

In 2020 it was Zipping Veyron, who joined 2013 winner Sometimes Speedy and 2015 winner Zipping Midge as winners of the feature for Jason Mackay.
