Looking for early info on this year’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
Run over 2,000 metres every March at Randwick Racecourse as the feature race on Day 2 of ‘The Championships’ each April, the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes is a lucrative $4 million weight-for-age contest that attracts a quality line-up of gallopers each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
The Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day as well as the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) are the key lead-ups into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
UK raider Addeybb (2000) was the last horse to complete the Ranvet Stakes – Queen Elizabeth Stakes double. That year, Chris Waller’s brilliant mare Verry Elleegant ran second in both events with a Tancred Stakes victory in between, further franking the form.
In 2021 Addeybb went back-to-back in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes when again beating home Verry Elleegant. The duo also ran one-two but in reverse order in that year’s Ranvet Stakes results, while Verry Elleegant went on to win that year’s Melbourne Cup at Flemington in the spring.
