QUEEN ELIZABETH STAKES HISTORY

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes, originally known as the AJC Queen's Plate, was first won by Cossack in 1851. He would return to claim victory in 1852.

A very interesting fact is that Cossack would capture the AJC Queen’s Plate in 1866. This wasn’t the inaugural winner of the race though – it was his son, also named Cossack!

The AJC Queen’s Plate would remain until 1872 before changing to the AJC Plate in 1873 in what would turn out to be a historic event as Dagworth and Reprieve dead-heated for first after their three mile journey (4800m).

It was decided that a winner would need to be crowned and the two initial victors would contest the event after the last race of the day. Another thrilling contest ensued with Dagworth winning the tie-break by a short-neck.

The AJC Plate would be contested until 1954 (although the 1934 edition was run as the AJC Kings Cup) before converting to the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

With $4 million in prizemoney the Queen Elizabeth Stakes attracts the country’s best middle-distance and staying horses, and is one of the most prestigious races on the Australian racing calendar.

In recent years, a number of international gallopers have contested the event and this number will hopefully continue to grow with the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and Racing NSW keen to attract world-class performers.

The open weight-for-age race is one of four Group 1 events on Day 2 of The Championships which also showcases the $2 million Sydney Cup (3200m), $1 million Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m) and $1 million Australian Oaks (2400m).

Notable winners of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes are Sportsman (1853-54), Archer (1862), The Barb (1869), Tim Whiffler (1868 & 1870-71), Chester (1878-79), Carbine (1889-91), Wakeful (1902), Poseidon (1908), Trafalgar (1909 & 1911-12), David (1921-23), Phar Lap (1930), Peter Pan (1933), Flight (1946), Tulloch (1958 & 1960-61), Ming Dynasty (1978), Jeune (1995), Doriemus (1996), Might And Power (1998), Lonhro (2003), Grand Armee (2004-05), More Joyous (2012), It’s A Dundeel (2014) and Criterion (2015).

Champion mare Winx captured the 2017 and 2018 editions as part of a winning streak in the thirties.

RANDWICK RACECOURSE

Originally known as the ‘Sandy Course,’ Randwick Racecourse was first used in 1833 where a private match race between two horses was held. 

In 1840 the track was abandoned as a racecourse and used for training purposes before the Australian Jockey Club (AJC) moved its headquarters to Randwick and held a meeting in 1860. 

The Queen Elizabeth II stand was opened to the public on August 4, 1969, and in 1992, Queen Elizabeth II visited Randwick and opened the new $30 million Paddock Grandstand. 

The Australian Derby (2400m) remains one of the longest standing races to be held at Randwick after its inaugural running took place in 1861.

RANDWICK TRACK DESCRIPTION

Randwick is the largest racetrack in New South Wales and all races are run in a clockwise direction. It is a sweeping track with a rise from the 300m mark to the winning post in the home straight.

As well as the main track, Randwick Racecourse contains a second track known as Kensington. Due to large rainfall in the area, Kensington has been reconstructed using the Strathayr racing surface which is similar to Moonee Valley.

Strathayr is a turf cover over a base of sand, this means it is a free draining track which can take a substantial amount of rain without affecting the rating.
