The Queen Of The Turf Stakes 2019 is a Group 1 race for fillies and mares aged three-years-old and above, which is run every year in April. It is held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, over a distance of 1,600 metres and under weight-for-age conditions. Worth $1 million, the Queen of the Turf Stakes is raced as part of the Sydney Cup Day, Day 2 of The Championships, and attracts entries from some of the country’s best fillies and mares.
A quality lead up race for the Queen of the Turf Stakes is often the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic run over a slightly shorter distance and held about a month previously. The race is reasonably new in racing terms, with the inaugural Queen of the Turf Stakes being run in 1972 when Refulgence claimed victory.
The race was first run over the distance of eight furlongs, which is equivalent to 1600m. The race was first classed as a Principle race until 1979 when it was made a Listed race. The Queen of the Turf Stakes finally received Group status in 1985 when it was named as a Group 3. The Queen of the Turf Stakes finally became a Group 1 in 2005 and has remained so ever since.
Up until 2014, the race had been run at Rosehill Gardens every year since it’s inception, apart from in 2008 when it was held at Canterbury Racecourse. Some notable past winners of the Queen of the Turf Stakes include C’est Si Bon (1982), Memphis Blues (1990), Danglissa (2000), Sorrento (2001) and Typhoon Tracey (2010).
