The Coolmore Classic is a race for fillies and mares only that is one of only two Group 1 races held for females during the Sydney autumn carnival, the other being the Queen Of The Turf Stakes, which is held on Gr1 ATC Queen Elizabeth Stakes day at Randwick.

This race attracts the best fillies & mares available and is always a hotly contested affair with plenty of quality gallopers assembled. The Classic is a handicap event, which theoretically puts the females on equal terms and makes for an exciting race with no real standouts, unless there happens to be an outstanding filly or mare entered.

Some classy females have won the Coolmore, including Typhoon Tracy (2009), Tuesday Joy (2007) and the mighty mare Sunline twice in 2000 & 2002.

Top mare Appearance (2013) was the last galloper to win both the Coolmore Stud Classic & Queen of The Turf Stakes in the same year, while Casino Rose (1999) was the last mare to achieve the double before that.

Dixie Blossoms (2019) finished runner-up in the Gr2 Guy Walter Stakes over 1400m at Randwick before finishing strongly to win this event in quality style for local trainer Ron Quinton.

Recent Coolmore Classic winners include Daysee Doom (2018) and Heavens Above (2017).
