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.

Offering $300,000 in total prize money as of 2024, 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 with the Emancipation winner exempt from Queen Of The Turf Stakes ballot.

Atishu (2nd in 2023) was the last Queen Of The Turf Stakes runner to back up and win the Queen Of The Turf Stakes at Randwick during ‘The Championships’.

The latest edition of the Emancipation Stakes ran on Saturday March 30, 2024 on Tancred Stakes Day at Rosehill offering the runaway 2.6 length winner Olentia ($6.50) a ballot exemption for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

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 race 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).

2024 Emancipation Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Emancipation Stakes 2024 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.

  • To Win: #13 Makarena ($4 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Makarena is deserving favourite in the Emancipation Stakes fit now and looking ready to strike fourth-up taking on the older mares. She chases her first win since the Tapp-Craig during the spring over 1400m here and has been thereabouts in all of her autumn lead-ups. Group 1 Surround Stakes fifth caught the eye two back only two lengths beaten in top company. At her latest she was runner-up to Zardozi (a Gr.1 VRC Oaks winner) in the Group 2 Phar Lap with 54.5kg at this track and trip. Down to 53kg now, Tim Clark retains the ride, and she’s drawn the rails. Big chance.

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.

The Emancipation Stakes form was franked in 2022 with the winner Promise Of Success back that spring to win the lucrative $2 million The Invitation (1400m) at Randwick in October.

In 2023 the Emancipation Stakes winner Roots franked the form in the winter heading to Brisbane for a Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara (1400m) second, while her stablemate Atishu improved on a second in the Emancipation to win both the Queen Of The Turf Stakes and the spring’s Group 1 Champions Stakes (2000m) that year.
