Queen of the Turf history
The Queen of the Turf has undergone plenty of chances throughout its relatively short history.
It was primarily run at Rosehill from 1972-2014, but under the new Championships schedule, it was moved to April at Randwick.
The race was sponsored by Coolmore Stud in 2016 and is subsequent called the Coolmore Legacy Stakes, but it's more commonly known as the Queen of the Turf.
It has recently been associated with quality winners, which wasn't always the case when the race was run at Group 3 and Group 2 level, but since 2005 it has been a Group 1 and the winners have improved.
Divine Madonna, Typhoon Tracy and More Joyous have graced the winners' enclosure and the quality thoroughbreds continue to win.
Prior to 2005, it was run under handicap conditions before switching to weight-for-age.
Queen of the Turf betting guide
There has been a good mix of favourites and each way chances winning the Queen of the Turf.
Foxplay won the 2017 edition as a $7.50 chance, but there was only one runner at shorter odds in the market (Silent Sedition at $4).
The three-year-old filly took advantage of the weight-for-age conditions when carrying 54.5kg and the Chris Waller-trained runner was just good enough to win.
Azkadellia was a popular winner in 2016 when scoring as firm favourite at $2.75. The Ciaron Maher-trained mare cruised to victory by two lengths, but trouble would later surround both Azkadellia and Maher.
Azkadellia would be banned from racing due to an incorrect sale procedure and Maher was also suspended from training.
There was an upset in 2015 and it was surprising to see a Gai Waterhouse-trained runner at long odds in the market. Amanpour caused the upset at $21 when winning by 1.8 lengths over crowd and betting second favourite Catkins.
It was an even market headed by quality filly First Seal and the form out of this edition was strong.
An even bigger upset was caused in 2014 when Gai Waterhouse scored another memorable victory with Diamond Drille at $41.
Showing her worth as one of the best trainers of female horses, Waterhouse scored her fourth win in five years after More Joyous was successful in 2011 and 2012.
She's the trainer to follow in the fittingly-named Queen of the Turf.
