What is the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes? 

The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes is a Group 1 horse race run over a trip of one mile at Ascot in October. Held on Champions Day, the race is commonly known as the final of the mile category in the British Champions Series, and that as a result it attracts the best horses in training each autumn - with £1.1 million in prize money on offer. 

What happened in the 2020 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes? 

Sent off an odds-on favourite for the 2020 QEII, the previously unbeaten Palace Pier was unable to land a significant blow as French raider The Revenant fended off Roseman in a thrilling finish to the Group 1 contest. The pair pulled well clear of Palace Pier, who could only finish third, and Pierre-Charles Boudot showed why he is now regarded as the premier French rider as he managed to just edge out Andrea Atzeni on board Roseman, who outran his 28/1 odds to finish a gallant runner-up.

The history of the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes 

The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes has a long and varied history since it was established in 1955, and it has grown into one of the highlights of the season.

Originally a Group 2 contest run in September, the race was upgraded to Group 1 status in 1987, before being moved to its present position in October when the new Champions Day fixture was created back in 2011.

There have been a number of memorable winners of the race over the years, including the legendary Brigadier Gerard, who won the race in consecutive years in 1971 and 1972 for Dick Hern and Joe Mercer. In more modern times there have been a number of legendary winners of the race, including Dubai Millennium (1999), Raven’s Pass (2008) and Rip Van Winkle (2009).

Who is the most iconic winner of the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes? 

We have already mentioned a number of the famous winners of the race, but once again there is no doubt that it is Frankel who stands alone.

The famous horse won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes in remarkable fashion back in 2011 to bring to a close a stunning three-year-old season with one of his best-ever wins. The Sir Henry Cecil-trained colt managed to beat Excelebration by four lengths, which was top drawer form that cemented Frankel as a superstar of the equine world.

Frankel would go onto achieve even bigger things the following year, stepping up to ten furlongs and remaining unbeaten in 14 career starts, but there is no doubt that his QEII win in 2011 remains one of the highlights of one of the great careers in the history of the sport.
