The Emancipation Stakes is a fillies and mares only event under set weight giving the proven milers the best chance at winning. The quality of the field is usually quite good given it’s held on one of Rosehill’s biggest race days, Golden Slipper Day. Other events on the card including the Golden Slipper, The BMW, Vinery Stud Stakes and the Tulloch Stakes all add to the importance of the race program.

In 2014 the race was moved from the last Saturday of April at Randwick to the first Saturday of April at Rosehill and reduced from 1600m to 1500m. The Emancipation Stakes now takes place on Golden Slipper Day.

While winners of this race aren’t always the very top female horses in the country at the time they usually are proven experienced horses or horses that will continue on to Group 1 level in the Spring.

The fastest 1600m time recorded in the past few decades belongs to Fantasia with the only sub 1:35 time of 1:34.5.

Other notable performances have come from Hysterical which won in 1993 after finishing a close second the previous year. More recently star performers Hot Danish (2007) and Sacred Choice (2010) have triumphed in the Emancipation Stakes.

Emancipation Stakes Field

The field for the Emancipation Stakes is made up of three-year-old and over fillies and mares with the field size limited to 17 horses with the addition of up to 4 emergency runners.
