The Ming Dynasty Quality is a Group 3 middle-distance sprint held each year in late August or early September at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. Raced over 1400 metres, the Ming Dynasty Quality is run under quality handicap conditions and is open to three year old horses only.

Paying a total purse of $160,000, the Ming Dynasty Quality now takes place on San Domenico Stakes Day as one of three Group 3 status features on the Sydney race card.

Horses that target the Ming Dynasty Quality are likely to have come via races such as the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m). Those runners which have a fairly decent run in the Ming Dynasty Quality could be targeting a Group 1 Sydney Spring Racing Carnival run in the $1 million Golden Rose Stakes over the same distance at Rosehill Gardens.

The 2019 Ming Dynasty Quality winner Quick Thinker went on to win the following year’s Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m).

The 2021 Ming Dynasty Quality runs on Saturday August 28, 2021.

Ming Dynasty Quality History

The Ming Dynasty Quality was inaugurated in 1986, with Imperial Majesty seizing victory in the first edition. The race is named in honour of champion racehorse Ming Dynasty, who saw phenomenal success, winning the Caulfield Cup in 1977 and 1980, the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Metropolitan Handicap in 1978 and the Australian Cup in 1978 and 1980.

Initially known as the D. Drainsfield Quality Handicap and then the Laing & Simmons Quality Handicap, the Ming Dynasty Quality began to go by its current name in 1994. From its inauguration until 2012 the Ming Dynasty Handicap was classified as a listed race. From 2013 onwards, it has held Group 3 status.

The Ming Dynasty Quality has changed location numerous times, usually accompanying the rest of the events on the Chelmsford Stakes Day race card. Since 1986, the Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap has changed location seven times, and is now run at Rosehill Racecourse. At the outset, the Ming Dynasty Quality was raced over 1600m, however from 1995 onwards it has been a 1400m event.

Notable Ming Dynasty Quality winners include Royal Pardon (1988), Lonhro (2001), Mearas (2006), Lion Tamer (2009), Tatra (2012) and Quick Thinker (2019). Ming Dynasty Quality results since 2000 are listed below.
