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).
