2022 Emancipation Stakes Results

  • 1st: #10 Promise Of Success
  • 2nd: #9 Kiku
  • 3rd: #4 Vangelic



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 Tancred Stakes Day*

*Note: The 2022 Emancipation Stakes ran on the Monday after the abandoned Rosehill Gardens meeting at Newcastle Racecourse.

The meeting is headlined by the Group 1 $1.5 million Tancred Stakes (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) and Amanpour (2nd in 2015) was the last Emancipation Stakes graduate to go on and win that Group 1.

The Emancipation Stakes 2022 ran on Monday the 28th of March at Newcastle after being moved from abandoned Rosehill meeting the Saturday prior due to unsuitable Heavy track conditions and was won by the John O’Shea-trained Promise Of Success ($6.50).

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. 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.

There have been three dual winners of the race in the past decade with: Skyerush (2012-13), Catkins (2014-15) and Zanbagh (2016-17).

See below for a full list of Emancipation Stakes results going back to 2000.

In 2022 the Emancipation Stakes was moved from Rosehill on Saturday the 26th of March to Newcastle on Monday the 28th of March due to unsafe Heavy track conditions and rainfall.
