The Show County Quality is a Group 3 sprint held over 1200m at at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse on Winx Stakes Day in August each year.

Run under quality handicap conditions, the Show County Quality is open only to horses three years and older. With prize money of $160,000, the Show County Quality is one of the more exciting races on a program filled with black-type sprinting events. The Show County Quality is held alongside the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m), Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m), Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) and Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m).

Those horses that contest the Show County Quality are often kicking-off their spring campaigns and often the Group 2 Tramway Handicap (1400m) is the next-up option. The best out of these races may go on to contest a spring Group 1 event such as the George Main Stakes (1600m), which the 2018 Show County winner Le Romain finished second to Winx in later that prep.

The Show County Quality 2019 will be run on Saturday August 24, 2019.

Show County Quality History

Inaugurated in 1993, the Show County Quality has maintained a reputation for quality sprinting displays since its inception. The race is named after renowned sprinter Show County, who during 1988 and 1989 won events such as the Silver Slipper Stakes, Maribyrnong Plate, San Domenico Stakes and Stan Fox Stakes. Big Dreams won the first edition of the Show County Quality.

At its inauguration, the Show County Quality was a listed race. It held this status until the 2013 edition, when it first ran as a Group 3 event.

Like much of NSW horse racing, the Show County Quality was not held in 2007 due to the outbreak of equine influenza.

The Show County Quality has changed location numerous times and has been held at three prominent Sydney racecourses, including Royal Randwick, Warwick Farm and Canterbury Park. As of 2014, it will be again held at Royal Randwick.
