Storm Queen Stakes

The Storm Queen Stakes is a Group 1 race for three-year-old fillies held annually in April at Rosehill racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 2000 metres under set weights and worth $500,000 in prize money. The 2019 Storm Queen Stakes was won by Verry Elleegant from Frankely Awesome with Aristia third.

In recent years the Storm Queen Stakes has been run as the 'Vinery Stud Stakes' and takes place on the final day of the three-day Golden Slipper Festival, alongside the Group 1 Tancred Stakes during the Sydney autumn racing carnival.

The Storm Queen Stakes is a fillies only event and the first autumn race over 2000m specifically for fillies, providing the perfect lead up race to the Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks over 2400m in a fortnight at Randwick. In recent times Verry Elleegant (2019), Heavenly Glow (2008) and Serenade Rose (2006) have taken out the Storm Queen Stakes & ATC Oaks double.

Smart filly Purple (2009) failed in the ATC Oaks after winning this race, but was good enough to win the Group 1 Queensland Oaks during the Brisbane winter carnival in May.

Generally attracting quality fillies, some memorable Storm Queen Stakes winners include Mosheen (2012), Miss Finland (2007), Special Harmony (2004), Champagne (1998) & Research (1989), who all continued on to become top class mares of the Australian turf.

Verry Elleegant (2019) captured the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill before scoring a classy victory in this event for trainer Chris Waller.

Recent Storm Queen Stakes winners include Hiyaam (2018) and Montoya's Secret (2017).
