The Queen Of The Turf Stakes – now known as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes – is held on one of Australia’s biggest race days at Royal Randwick as just one of the four Group 1 races held on Day 2 of Sydney’s ‘The Championships’.

The meeting takes place on the second Saturday in April during the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and is headlined by the season’s richest race – the Group 1 $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m). Also run on Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day are the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m), Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) and the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Contested over a mile (1600m) the race is worth $1 million in total prize money and is run under weight-for-age conditions. The Queen Of The Turf Stakes field is open only to fillies and mares aged three-years-old and above.

The 2020 Coolmore Legacy Stakes prizemoney was reduced to $500,000 to help cope with the COVID-19 pandemic before returning to $1 million in 2021.

Female gallopers may come into the million dollar showdown via a number of earlier autumn races including the Group 2 Emanciapation Stakes (1500m) a fortnight before and the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) run towards the start of March.

The Coolmore Classic – Queen Of The Turf Stakes double has recently been achieved by the likes of Con Te Partiro (2020), Appearance (2013) and Camino Rose (1999).

The 2021 Queen Of The Turf Stakes runs on Day 2 of The Championships, Saturday April 10, 2021 as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes.

Queen Of The Turf Stakes History

The Queen Of The Turf Stakes has slowly made its way up in status from being just a principle race in 1972 to becoming a Listed race in 1979. In 1985 it was elevated to Group 3 status and shortly afterwards became a Group 2 race in 1991. Eventually in 2005 the Queen Of The Turf Stakes was granted Group 1 status.

Although the Queen Of The Turf Stakes was held at Canterbury Racecourse in 2008, it had remained at Rosehill for its entire duration since 1972 when Refulgence won in 1 minute 30 seconds. As of 2014, the Queen of the Turf Stakes is held at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

The race changed its name to The Coolmore Legacy Stakes in 2016.
