Currently a Grade II stakes race with a purse of $200,000, it is open to horses, age four, willing to race one and one-eighth miles on the dirt surface of Santa Anita Park. Run in early February, the race is the third leg of Santa Anita Park's Strub Series.
Inaugurated in 1948 as the Santa Anita Maturity, the name was changed to the Charles H. Strub Stakes in 1963 in honor of Charles H. Strub (1884–1958) who built and owned Santa Anita Park. In 1994 the billing was shortened to the Strub Stakes to honor both Dr. Strub and Dr. Strub's son, Robert P. Strub, who succeeded Dr. Strub as CEO at Santa Anita and had died the previous May.
From 1948 to 1969 and from 1971 to 1997 the race was contested at 1 1⁄4 miles.
