|Track:||Rosehill racecourse, Sydney|
|Race Type:||Fillies & Mares - Set Weights + Penalty|
|2018 Winner:||Prompt Response|
The Emancipation Stakes is a race for fillies & mares only over a mile that usually sees more than handy females going around for the spoils on offer. The set weight & penalty conditions of the race gives an advantage to the better performed fillies & mares and the winner is usually an above average galloper who can hold their own in stronger races.
A mares only race such as the Gr1 Coolmore Classic held earlier in the carnival at Rosehill is a possible lead up race for females contesting this event and generally the winner is a well performed mare just below the upper echelon of females.
The better class mares contesting this race will more than likely go on to the upcoming Gr1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes at Randwick which is a females only race. In recent times Amanpour (2nd in 2015) and Diamond Drille (4th in 2014) went on to victory in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes after performing admirably in the Emancipation Stakes.
Occasionally a high class mare such as the ill-fated Hot Danish (2007) will tackle this race and prove too good on the day due to the weighted conditions of the race.
Prompt Response (2018) ran fifth in the Coolmore Classic over 1500m at Rosehill before winning this event and recent Emancipation Stakes winners include Zanbagh (2016-2017) and Catkins (2014-15).
