ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes History

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes has undergone plenty of changes since it was first run in 1851 when Cossack won the event. Up until 1872, the event was known as the Queen’s Plate and it was then changed to the AJC Plate. In 1954, the race was titled the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and has maintained that name ever since.

Originally raced over 4800m, the distance slowly decreased to 3600m, 2800m, 2400m, 2200m, and finally stopped at 2000m.

2017 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Form

The Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 The BMW (2400m) are generally considered the best Queen Elizabeth form lead-up races, but in recent years the winners of the Group 1 event have come from a wide variety of races. The Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) have both developed into key lead-up races as the general standard of The BMW has dropped in quality.
