Looking for early info on this year’s Queen Of The Turf Stakes? The experts at Neds have put together everything you need to know before this year’s race.
The Queen Of The Turf Stakes (recently known as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes) is a 1600m mile showdown for fillies and mares held on Day 2 of Sydney’s ‘The Championships’ at Royal Randwick each April. Offering $1 million in prize money, the weight-for-age event offers a nice next-up option for runners out of the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).
Con Te Partiro (2020) was the last mare to complete the Coolmore Classic – Queen Of The Turf Stakes double, a popular punt during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
First run in 1972, the event has been won by plenty of quality mares including More Joyous (2011-12) and Alizee (2018).
