Godolphin Crown Ideal for Daysee Doom

Trainer Ron Quinton is thrilled with the condition of Daysee Doom and is confident that the in-form mare will take plenty of beating when she lines up for Saturday’s Group 3 Godolphin Crown (1300m) at Hawkesbury.

Named in honour of the former champion mare Emancipation, the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes is a set weights plus penalties race for fillies and mares held in late March during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1500m and offering $200,000 in prize money, the Emancipation Stakes moved to Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in 2014 and now takes place on The BMW Day.

The meeting is headlined by the $1.5 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m). Along with the Emancipation Stakes, the other Group 2 support act on the card is the Tulloch Stakes (2000m) for ATC Derby types.

Runners in the Emancipation Stakes field may come via a run in a race like the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at the same track / distance a fortnight earlier. After the Group 2 a nice option for the best out of the Emancipation Stakes is a Royal Randwick run during ‘The Championships’ in the Group 1 Queen Of the Turf Stakes (1600m).

The Emancipation Stakes 2017 ran on Saturday March 25, 2017.

Emancipation Stakes History

First held in 1985, the Emancipation Stakes was first won by Aspirations when it was a Listed race. In 1996 it became a Group 3 event until 1999 when it was elevated to Group 2 status. Since its inauguration, 1 minute 34.52 seconds has been the record for the fastest winning time which was by Fantasia in 2006. The slowest winning time was 1 minute 45 seconds by Top Dance in 1990. R.S. Dye is the only jockey to have managed six wins in the event between years 1988 to 1999.

The race is named in honour of Emancipation. Emancipation was a mare who only raced as a three and four year old however her racing career was outstanding. She won 19 out of 28 starts and all seven of her Group 1 wins were in Sydney.
