Ladbrokes Tip: Check the Emancipation Stakes results for a guide to the Queen Of The Turf Stakes

The Emancipation Stakes is a Group 2 race for fillies and mares aged three-years-old and above held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse* on a Saturday in late March (early April in 2021) each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. The set weights plus penalties event runs over 1500m and is a key support act on the Tancred Stakes Day card, which is one of the big race days of the season hosting two Group 1 showdowns.

*The 2022 Emancipation Stakes ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle following the abandoned Rosehill meeting the Saturday prior. 

Offering $200,000 in total prize money, the Emancipation Stakes is often used as a lead-up to the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick a fortnight later. In recent years Amanpour (2nd in 2015) and Diamond Drille (4th in 2014) came off good Emancipation Stakes runs to win the Queen Of The Turf Stakes during ‘The Championships’.

The latest edition of the Emancipation Stakes ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle after being postponed from the abandoned Rosehill meeting on Saturday and was won by the Queen Of The Turf Stakes-bound Promise Of Success ($6.50).

Emancipation Stakes Betting

Early Emancipation Stakes odds are out at bookmakers after nominations are taken the Monday of race week and firm after the final field is announced two days later.

Mares with good lead-up form in earlier races of similar class for female gallopers over the autumn in Sydney usually dominate Emancipation Stakes betting including those that ran well in the Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) in February and the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) a fortnight before.

Nimalee ($4.20 in 2021) was the last favourite in Emancipation Stakes betting to get the job done.

The Emancipation Stakes field attracts a class line-up of in-form fillies and mares coming off earlier Sydney runs over the autumn.

Many back-up out of a tougher assignment at the track in the previous month’s Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m). In 2014 the Emancipation Stakes winner Catkins, who also won the 2015 edition 12 months later, came off a third in the Coolmore Classic.

More recently in 2017 the Emancipation Stakes winner Zanbagh improved on a lead-up fifth in the Coolmore Classic to salute; Prompt Response atoned for a luckless fifth in the Coolmore Classic to win the Emancipation Stakes of 2018; and the following year Invincible Gem won the Group 2 having run eighth in the Group 1 last time out.

In 2022 Promise Of Success improved on a lead-up Coolmore Classic fourth to win the rescheduled Emancipation Stakes at Newcastle.

Emancipation Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday with the final field and barrier draw released on the Wednesday.

Emancipation Stakes Tips

Emancipation Stakes tips include looking for proven Group-class mares with good records over a similar distance with form in Sydney against similar company.

The Coolmore Classic over the same track and distance earlier in the month has been a good Emancipation Stakes guide in recent years, and three mares have gone back-to-back in the race in the past decade with dual winners Skyerush (2012-13), Catkins (2014-15) and Zanbagh (2016-17).

2022 Emancipation Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Emancipation Stakes 2022 betting tips and race selections will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the female gallopers to back and sack in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes lead-up race.

  • Each Way: #8 Mirra Vision ($12 at time of publish) 

For value, taking Mirra Vision Each Way could prove profitable in the Emancipation based on her latest outing. The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained daughter of Lonhro was good third-up in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at this track / distance when running a surprise second at big odds. She looks overs again with improvement still to come dropping in grade. Fit in a small field from a good gate. Does rise in weights, but she’s right in this.

Emancipation Stakes Form Guide

The Emancipation Stakes form guide details must know facts for punters including the trainers, jockeys, barriers and lead-up form of all the runners in the race.

Looking at the form on mares coming out of a lead-up like the Coolmore Classic and checking the records of the Emancipation Stakes hopefuls at the track / distance is important and can help make a successful wager on the event.
