The Aspiration Quality is a Group 3 mile race for fillies and mares run at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Randwick Guineas Day during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Contested over 1600m the open quality event for fillies and mares aged three-years-old and above offers $160,000 in prize money and is run on the same day as the Group 1 $1 million Randwick Guineas (1600m).

Other feature races on the Randwick Guineas Day program include the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m), Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m), Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Wenona Girl Quality (1200m).

Runners in the Aspiration Quality field may come off a lead-up autumn run in an easier race and could be eyeing a run in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) back at Randwick in April during The Championships. Between the Aspiration Quality and the Queen Of The Turf Stakes many mares also run in the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill.

The Aspiration Quality 2020 ran at Randwick Racecourse on Saturday March 7, 2020 and was won first-up by Nettoyer.

The Wendy Roche-trained defending champion Nettoyer was back in winning form first-up saluting in the Aspiration Quality 2020 results thanks to a nice turn of foot to hold off a fast-finishing Irithea for a quarter-length victory that surprised jockey Hugh Bowman.

Aspiration Quality History

The Aspiration Quality was inaugurated in 2006 making it one of Sydney’s youngest races. Lord Of The Land (2006) won the first edition and since then quality types including Sacred Choice (2010), Fibrillation (2012) and Heavens Above (2016) have added their names to the Aspiration Quality winners’ list.

Along with Randwick Racecourse the event has also taken place at Sydney’s Warwick Farm Racecourse (2011, 2013). It started as a Listed event but has been run as a Group 3 status race since 2014 and has always been part of the Randwick Guineas Day program.
