The Colin Stephen Quality is a distance handicap race that's run over the same course & distance as the Gr1 The Metropolitan, which is held on the final day of the Randwick spring carnival. This race has proven to be a great guide in recent times.

In the past few years Railings (2005), Dress Circle (2001), Coco Cobana (2000), Vita Man (1999), In Joyment (1998), Heart Ruler (1997) and Hula Flight (1996) have all won this race before going on to win the The Metropolitan the following week.

A number of horses have won or placed in both races over the years, while Herculian Prince (5th in 2010) backed up to win The Metropolitan at his next start and No Wine No Song (2010) ran third behind him.

The Colin Stephen Quality has been a top recent guide to the major staying race of the Randwick racing carnival on Epsom Handicap day and typically attracts horses who previously may have contested the listed Premier's Cup at Rosehill or the Gr3 Newcastle Gold Cup at Newcastle.

Miss Admiration (2018) ran fifth in the Listed Heatherlie Stakes over 1700m at Caulfield in Melbourne before heading north to Sydney to win this event in comfortable style for the Mick Price stable.

Recent Colin Stephen Quality winners include Auvray (2017) and Allergic (2016).
