The Queen Of The Turf Stakes also known as the Legacy Stakes is the feature race for the mares in Sydney for the Autumn Carnival. It is held at Randwick racecourse each year over 1600m and is a highlight of the second day of the Championships.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $1,000,000 and is at set weight conditions for fillies and mares.
The 2018 Queen Of The Turf Stakes will be run on Saturday the 7th of April, 2018 at Randwick racecourse.
The Queen Of The Turf is perfectly placed during the Carnival. It follows on from the Coolmore Classic and the Emancipation Stakes and it gives mares a chance to follow up from running in the Doncaster seven days prior.
Favourites have a fantastic record in this race, winning seven of the last eleven, though the last three winners of the race have started $10 or better.
