Racing kicks off at Randwick today at 11:30am (AEST) with the $150,000 Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) for the two-year-old milers and continues through until Race 10 closes the card with the $300,000 Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) jumping at 5:15pm (AEDT).

Four elite level races highlight the program starting with Race 6 (2:35pm) for the three-year-old fillies in the $1 million Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m), a full field of 14 to face off with the two emergencies now officially out.

The Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) over the two miles has $2 million in prize money on offer and the original 11 starters are all in the mix including the dominant Chris Waller-trained trio of Libran, Who Shot Thebarman and the defending champion Grand Marshal.

The Queen Of The Turf Stakes runs this year as the $1 million Group 1 The Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m) and after originally drawing above capacity, only 15 will run after the withdrawal of #2 Politeness as well as the two emergencies – Supara and Asinara.

Finally the marquee race of the day is scheduled for Race 9 at 4:35pm with the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) where hoof issues have ruled out Our Ivanhowe, giving Awesome Rock a shot as the first emergency who now gets a run.
