The 2016 Toy Show Quality is a 1300m sprint held towards the beginning of the Spring Racing Carnival every August at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

The Toy Show Quality is open only to fillies and mares and is run under quality handicap conditions. Raced across a distance of 1300m, the Toy Show Quality provides a fantastic distance for both short distance sprinters and middle-distance gallopers. The distance allows some horses to step up in preparation of later, longer races, while it also allows stayers to have a much shorter warm up race.

Because the Toy Show Quality is held relatively early in the Spring Racing Carnival, many trainers target it as an early performance for their horse. There is usually a mixture of horses racing first-up, those who have already had black-type experience in their current campaign, and those who are only just kicking things off and may have had an unlisted run or two prior.

The Toy Show Quality shares Warwick Stakes Day with two other Group 3 events, the Show County Quality (1200m) and the Up And Coming Stakes. Also on the day are two Group 2 events, the Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) and the feature event, the Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Fillies and mares who run in the Toy Show Quality might go on to races such as the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes or the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes.

The 2016 Toy Show Quality will be run on August 20th.

Toy Show Quality History

The Toy Show Quality was inaugurated in 1995 and originally ran as a listed race. The first edition of the Toy Show Quality was won by Joie Denise. While not a very old race, the Toy Show Quality has developed a decent reputation for providing an entertaining, competitive race with plenty of opportunity to gauge form.

The race is named after champion runner Toy Show, whose trophies include the 1975 Golden Slipper Stakes and the 1976 Thousand Guineas and Newmarket Handicap.

The Toy Show Quality was originally raced over a distance of 1400m. However, a move to Canterbury Park in 2000 saw the race reduced to 1300m for two years. In 2002, it again returned to 1400m, a distance it maintained until 2011. Since then, the race has run over 1300m.

Upgraded to a Group 3 event in 2013, the Toy Show Quality has been hosted by three major Sydney racecourse; Royal Randwick Racecourse, Warwick Farm Racecourse and Canterbury Park.

Notable Toy Show Quality winners include Captivating (1997), Chiming Lass (2000), Illuminates (2010) and Red Tracer (2011).
