Queen Elizabeth Stakes VRC
Not to be confused with the Australian Turf Club race of the same name, The Queen Elizabeth Stakes (VRC) is the second last race of Spring Racing Carnival.

A good lead in for this race is the Caulfield Cup. Although there is a huge difference between the prize payouts, entry for the right horse can mean a quick and easy bonus before the 2018 racing calendar is over. Another race to consider is the Moonee Valley Gold Cup.

Horses that do well in this race often go on to enter the Zipping Classic on the following Saturday.
