Queen Of The Turf Stakes 2021

Saturday April 10, 2021

Ladbrokes Tip: Last start winners have an excellent recent record in the Queen Of The Turf / Coolmore Legacy Stakes results

The Queen Of The Turf Stakes runs on the second Saturday of April as part of the elite racing action of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and is now known as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes. The Group 1 race for fillies and mares is held on Day 2 of The Championships at Royal Randwick Racecourse and runs alongside the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Sydney Cup and Australian Oaks.

Contested over 1600m the mile classic was run over 1500m up until 2014. It has been conducted under weight-for-age conditions since 2005 and offers a total of $1 million in prize money including $600,000 for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes winner.

For 2020 the Coolmore Legacy Stakes prizemoney was down to $500,000 due to the Coronavirus outbreak with $287,000 going to the winner, with stakes boosted back to $1 million in 2021. 

Winners of the Coolmore Classic and Emancipation Stakes are exempt from Queen Of The Turf Stakes ballot and have provided the majority of winners in the past decade or so.

The last female galloper to complete the Coolmore Classic – Queen Of The Turf Stakes double was Con Te Partiro (2020)  – the first since Appearance (2013).

The next edition of the Queen Of The Turf Stakes takes place on Saturday April 10, 2021 as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes.

Queen Of The Turf Stakes Odds & Betting

Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting is traditionally led by proven Group 1 performers that come out of the Coolmore Classic in March over 1500m at Rosehill.

The Coolmore is a quality handicap race while the Queen Of The Turf is WFA so looking for fillies and mares with previous weight-for-age form is also important. No Queen Of The Turf Stakes winner since 2001 has finished worse than sixth in the lead-up and last start winners often dominate the odds with six saluting from 2008 – 2020.

Queen Of The Turf Stakes odds are usually dominated by four-year-old mares as this age group has produced more winners than any other including six of the winners from 2010 – 2020. In 2017-2018 however the three-year-old fillies went back-to-back with Foxplay and Alizee respectively.

Favourites enjoyed a purple patch from 2004 – 2012 winning all but one of the editions before three upset Queen Of The Turf Stakes results from 2013 – 15 including 40/1 roughie Diamond Drille (2014). The punters were back in luck for the 2016 edition when Azkadellia won as the shortest-priced in Queen Of The Turf Stakes betting.

There was another notable upset in 2019 when Kenenda won the Coolmore Legacy at odds of $20.

Queen Of The Turf Stakes Field

The Queen Of The Turf Stakes field features a line-up of the season’s best fillies and mares proven over a mile and coming out of lead-up races like the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) the month before and the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) a fortnight earlier.

From 1996 – 2020, 12 Queen Of The Turf Stakes winners had their final lead-up in the Coolmore Classic including three completing the double most recently Con Te Partiro (2020).

In that time only three had their preparatory run outside of Sydney most recently with Typhoon Tracy who came off a Melbourne win at Caulfield in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes in 2010 followed in 2019 by Kenedna who improved on a Group 2 Sunline Stakes third at The Valley.

Queen Of The Turf Stakes nominations are taken on a Monday in early February before first acceptances close a month later.
