Queen Elizabeth Stakes History
Ever since Cossack’s first memorable victory, back in 1851, the Queen Elizabeth Stakes has undergone numerous alterations, in terms of name and length. At its inception, it was a gruelling race among the toughest and most competent stayers that had to make it through an arduous 5km –or 24 furlong- distance.
The Queen Elizabeth Stakes broke into the racing world as a Principal event, and it made it all the way up to Group 1, in 1980, where it still stands. The prize money offered to the best thoroughbred of the race has climbed to an amazing $4 million, in 2014, listing the race as the most lucrative during the 2014 Sydney Racing Calendar.
