The Queen Elizabeth Stakes field can be run with a maximum of 14 runners but the Group 1 event does not always draw a capacity field; with quality over quantity generally the scenario for the feature event of Sydney’s ‘The Championships’.

The increased prizemoney of offer for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, with the race now worth a generous $4 million, is expected to see the competition for places in the field heat-up.

The 2020 Queen Elizabeth Stakes field faced off for a reduced $2 million in total prize money due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the past decade the feature has run at a capacity field of 14 twice when Pompeii Ruler won in 2009 and Lucia Valentina saluted in 2016.

For three years from 2017-19, the Queen Elizabeth Stakes field was dominated by the world’s best mare Winx who enjoyed a hat-trick of wins before her retirement.

Horses that win the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m), Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m), Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) and the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) gain automatic entry into the Queen Elizabeth Stakes field with ballot exemption on offer to those earlier autumn carnival champions.

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes  draws the best weight-for-age horses from right around Australia and the Australian Turf Club (ATC) is hopeful that the race can become the true Australian Weight-For-Age Championship of the season rivalling even the spring’s Group 1 Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley; with the best three-year-olds in the country taking on the older horses.

$4 million in prizemoney makes the Queen Elizabeth Stakes one of the most lucrative races on the global racing calendar and the event is expected to feature a number of horses from right around the globe in future years.

In 2020 despite the decrease in prize money due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the William Haggas-trained Addeybb became the first international raider to win the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
