The 2019 Queen Of The South Stakes is a 1600m Group 2 event held at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide, South Australia. The race is traditionally held in April or May and worth $275,000 towards the end of the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival.
The Queen Of The South Stakes is for fillies and mares, run under set weights and attracts the top local talent as well as a few handy interstate challengers. The very best rated horses in the country will usually run at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney on the same day in a variety of black type events during the Doncaster Mile Day program.
There have been some fantastic performances in Queen Of The South Stakes history with a few notable mentions.
Memphis Blues won back to back races in 1989 and 1990 with some of the fastest performances ever recorded.
Not to be outdone, in the next two years Shavano Miss also went back-to-back and her 1991 time of 1m 34.5s is the fastest time in the history of the race.
More recently Sylvaner was the last horse to go back-to-back claiming the 2002 and 2003 events.
Returntosender is one of the biggest names to travel to Adelaide for the Queen Of The South Stakes, comfortably claiming the 2010 event.
