More Details About The ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes

The 2000 meter open race is held on the same day as the Australian Oaks during the autumn racing carnival with $4,000,000 in prize money at stake making it the world's richest turf race over 2000 metres. Other feature races of the day include the Group 1 ATC Queen Of The Turf Stakes and the Sydney Cup.

The race attracts a classy field of middle distance gallopers where level weights make it a keen contest and a feast for race goers seeking to make it big on the carnival.

Among the outstanding horses to win the ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes include Our Poetic Prince in 1989, Rough Habit in 1992, Durbridge in 1994, Might and Power in 1998, and Lonhro in 2003. Two of the seven Group 1 races won by Grand Armee include the ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 2004 and 2005.

Quality horses usually enter the fray from other middle distance races such as the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap held at Randwick a week earlier. Other events that are a good lead up to the ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes are the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes, AJC Derby, and Rosehill Guineas.

Horses from these preceding events are better suited over the 2000 meter distance. The 2011 ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner, a UK import, My Kingdom of Fife caused a major upset in the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude over 1600 meters, winning the event on his first run in Australia after returning from a spell.

Other notable winners who went on to greater success in the Melbourne Cup include the 1995 champion, Jeune, Doriemus in 1996 and Might And Power in 1998.

Cossakc won the inaugural event which was a principal race known as the ATC Queen’s Plate and repeated the feat the next year. During this time horses travelled the grueling distance of 24 furlongs, where only the toughest stayers managed to hit the winning post first. Sportsman picked up from where Cossakc left off to win the next two races in 1853 and 1854. Tim Whiffler, Carbine, David, Tulloch, and a few other champion thoroughbreds also won two or more AJC Queen Elizabeth Stakes during the their racing career.

The race was elevated to Group 1 status in 1980 with Grand Armee the only horse to score a double ever since.

2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Details, Results and Recap

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2022 were won by Think It Over for trainer Kerry Parker under the ride of jockey Nash Rawiller. Think It Over won the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes by defeating Zaaki under the ride of Jamie Kah to win the $4m 2000m Weight For Age contest at Royal Randwick.

The Lead Up To The 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes

The 2022 edition of the Queen Elizabeth had been billed by some as the race of the century due to the high calibre of 4 entrants into the race - Verry Elleegant for Chris Waller, Zaaki trained by Annabel Neasham, Anamoe for the Godolphin team and Duais for Edward Cummings.

Verry Elleegant came into the race looking to finally win the Queen Elizabeth Stakes after battling with UK raider Addeyyb in the last two editions and ultimately finishing second both times. She had already won the Melbourne Cup and punters were confident this could be her year.

Contender number two was Annabel Neasham trained import Zaaki. The seven year old gelding had won a handful of Group 1 races during the Spring and after missing the Cox Plate this would be the first Sydney side clash between Zaaki and Verry Elleegant under WFA conditions.

Also looking for a Queen Elizabeth Stakes title was runner up in the 2022 Cox Plate, Anamoe. The Godolphin colt trained by James Cummings had been putting in strong performances against his own age group as well as the older horses under WFA conditions.

Finally making up the star quartet in the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes was Duais who was the form horse on paper having become the first mare since Makybe Diva to win the Sydney Cup and Tancred Stakes double in March.

While all the focus was on these four in betting every seemed to forget that the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes was a nine runner field that also had several Group 1 winners including I’m Thunderstruck, Monteflia and more importantly in 2022, Think It Over.

Results of the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes

The result and final placings for the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes which was run over a distance of 2000m on Saturday 9th April at Royal Randwick Racecourse under weight for age conditions are as follows: 

1st - 1.Think It Over (4) - 59kg - $41.00
2nd - 2.Zaaki (3) - 59kg - $5.00
3rd - 4.Mount Popa (8) - $61.00

Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2022 Race Recap

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes were billed as one of the biggest races ever in Australia due to the four super talents that were lining up in the $4m contest at Royal Randwick. Before the jump there had been heavy backing for Verry Elleegant and Anamoe with Zaaki and Duais drifting out on the day.

A field of 9 jumped from the barriers for the Randwick Group 1 contest with Zaaki, Montefilia and Think It Over all beginning well from the inside barriers. I’m Thunderstruck was slow away with Duais who settled at the back of the field for the majority of the race.

As the field moved through to the 1600m marker and settled down in running Zaaki under the ride of Jamie Kah would be allowed to stroll along in front tracked by Think It Over one out and one back with Montefiia on the rails. The other big runners settled in the middle of the pack with Duais bringing up the rear.

With the race making its way past the halfway stage over the 1000m the order remained unchanged with Zaaki and Kah controlling the speed up front with Think It Over in close attendance. It would only be on the final turn where the field would bunch and make there moves.

I’m Thunderstruck would begin to improve confidently along the rail as Zaaki began to crank up the pace. Anamoe, Very Elleegant and Duais would all bunch on the outside and attempt to make an impression in the race.

As the rest of the field headed down the centre of the track, jockey Nash Rawiller would take Think It Over to the standside rail. While it would cost a few lengths to get to the rail and allow Zaaki to kick clear, Rawiller would find the better ground and come strongly in the final 200m.

With the better ground Rawillier would come flying late at Zaaki and get home by a long neck while Mount Popa came third, over 3 lengths off the winners. The move by jockey Rawiller proved inspired and won the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes for trainer Kerry Parker in a boilover.
