The 2017 Queen Of The Turf 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 $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m). Also run on Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day are the $2 million 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.

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 Appearance (2013) and Camino Rose (1999).

The 2017 Queen Of The Turf Stakes will run on Day 2 of The Championships, Saturday April 8, 2017 and is known as the Coolmore Legacy Stakes.
