The Queen Elizabeth Stakes field can be run with a maximum of 14 runners but the Group 1 event does not always draw a capacity field; with quality over quantity generally the scenario for the feature event of Sydney’s ‘The Championships’. The increased prizemoney of offer for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, with the race now worth a generous $4 million, is expected to see the competition for places in the field heat-up.

In the past decade the feature has run at a capacity field of 14 twice when Pompeii Ruler won in 2009 and Lucia Valentina saluted in 2016.

Horses that win the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m), Group 1 The BMW (2400m), Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) and the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) gain automatic entry into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes field with ballot exemption on offer to those earlier autumn carnival champions.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes  draws the best weight-for-age horses from right around Australia and the Australian Turf Club (ATC) is hopeful that the race can become the true Australian Weight-For-Age Championship of the season rivalling even the spring’s Group 1 Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley; with the best three-year-olds in the country taking on the older horses. $4 million in prizemoney makes the Queen Elizabeth Stakes one of the most lucrative races on the global racing calendar and the event is expected to feature a number of horses from right around the globe in future years.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes Field faces off on Day 2 of The Championships on Saturday April 14, 2018 .
