Winners and Past Results for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes

Queen Of The Turf Stakes

The Queen of the Turf Stakes, run at Randwick Racecourse and hosted by the Australian Turf Club is held on one of the biggest race days during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

The race was transferred to the second day of The Championships and is one of the feature races held on the day, with the main race being the $4 Million Group1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Restricted to fillies and mares, this 1600 metre race is held under weight for age conditions and offers $1,000,000 in prize money. The race is considered to be a display of speed, elegance and strength and attracts quality gallopers hoping to enhance their performance over the mile and other middle distance races during the carnival.

Victory is usually earned by the most dominating three year old fillies that have performed well over the last season, with the conditions suiting higher quality gallopers.

The Coolmore Stud Classic is an excellent lead up event to this race.

The Queen of the Turf Stakes was established in 1972 and run over 8 furlongs, as a principal race. In 1979 it was made a Listed race, and received Group 3 status in 1985. In 1991 it was upgraded to Group 2 and finally gained its present status as a Group 1 event in 2004.

The race has been held at the Rosehill track since its inception except for 2008 where it was held at Canterbury Racecourse. In 1972, Refulgence won the event with a time of 1 minute 30 seconds, which was broken in 1993 by Excited Angle who clocked 1 minute 27.46 seconds. The slowest time is credited to 1990 winner Memphis Blues who crossed the winning post in 1 minute 34.15 seconds.

Some of the notable winners include C'est Si Bon in 1982, Memphis Blues in 1990, Sorrento in 2001, and Typhoon Tracy in 2010.

As they settled, Solicit was the leader followed by Recite. Red Tracer was handy to this pair, with Diamond Drille racing further back and Gyspy Diamond in last place after missing the start. Solicit still led as they approached the turn but Red Tracer was edging forward as was Diamond Drille who started a run around the outside, while Gyspy Diamond looked to make up ground along the fence. In the straight, Diamond Drille and Red Tracer charged down the outside, with Gyspsy Diamond further in, and these three battled it out with Diamond Drill causing an upset in a blanket finish.
