    What are the Types of Odds?

    Betting on horse-racing offers punters a wide variety of options. It's important to understand the different types of bets before you start to place your first wagers. 

    Queen's Plate Live Odds

    Not betting in the future pool listed above means waiting until race day and betting with "live odds" dictated by the amount of money being bet in the win pool. There's certainly nothing wrong with this approach and sportsbooks support this type of wagering.

    Queen's Plate Multirace Exotics

    The double, the Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, and Pick 6 all involve picking the winners of consecutive races. Using multiple combinations is the strategic way to place these kinds of bets.

    Queen's Plate Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta Wagering Odds

    These commonplace wagers are extremely popular on Kentucky Derby day and involve picking the order of finish among the top two (exacta), three (trifecta) or four (superfecta) finishers.

    These are the different formats that the sportsbooks present the odds. Choose the one which is clearer for you:

    Fractional Odds

    Fractional odds are historically the most common odds in horse racing and are given in a fractional format, from 1/9 to 99/1 and higher. A $2 Win bet on a horse at 5/1 will pay $12 for the win including the original bet.

    Decimal Odds

    Decimal odds are the most straightforward type of odds that are offered, usually in UK racebooks, and include the original bet in the final payout. For example, a $1 Win bet on a horse at 5.00 odds will pay $5 if the horse wins. 

    American Odds

    As the name implies, these are the odds most often used in US-based racebooks and are also known as "money-line" odds. Designated with a plus-or-minus sign, $1 bet to win on a horse at +500 returns $6.00 if the horse wins the race, including the original amount bet. 

    What is the Queen’s Plate?

    Founded in 1860 and named in honour of Queen Victoria, the 2019 Queen's Plate marks the 160th edition of Canada's most prestigious race. Open to three-year-olds, it is the only $1 million race in Canada restricted to Canadian-bred horses.

    current queen's plate odds

    The race takes place every year on the last Saturday of June or the first Saturday of July and kicks off the Canadian Triple Crown of horse racing. It is followed just over three weeks later by the Prince of Wales Stakes from Fort Erie Race Track, with the Triple Crown series wrapping up one month later back at Woodbine with the running of the Breeders' Stakes

    In contrast to the US Triple Crown, the Breeders' Stakes is run on the turf, whereas all US Triple Crown races are run on dirt. 

    To date, there have been 12 Triple Crown winners, including 1993 winner Peteski, who was sired by 1978 US Triple Crown winner Affirmed.  

    When is the Queen’s Plate 2021

    The 2021 Queen's Plate is Sunday, August 22. 

    Where is the Queen’s Plate held

    The Queen's Plate is held at Woodbine Race Track which is located in the Toronto, Ontario suburb of Etobicoke. 

    Which Horses Won the Race?

    The recent history of Queen's Plate winners has been dotted with horses that have found success in major races on Canadian home soil and abroad.

    The 2020 winner was Mighty Heart Dramedy, who was ridden by Daisuke Fukumoto taking an excellent victory and bringing some life back to an otherwise difficult year for Horse Racing. 

    The 2019 winner was One Bady Boy, who was rode by Jockey Flavien Prat, taking the victory in 2:02.98 in the 1/4-mile event on the Tapeta course. Trainer Richard Baltas was delighted with the win and a little more in his purse. 

    The 2018 winner Wonder Gadot was a Grade 2 winner in the US and runner-up in the 2018 Kentucky Oaks prior to winning the Plate and went on win the Prince of Wales Stakes last year.

    The 2017 winner, Holy Helena, has since won multiple graded-stakes races in the US, while Shaman Ghost won a pair of Grade 1 races at Saratoga and Santa Anita and ran second in the 2017 $12 million Pegasus World Cup.

    who will win queen's plate

    In 1997 Awesome Again became the first and only Queen's Plate winner to go on to win the Breeders' Cup Classic.

    The claim to fame as the first Canadian-bred horse to win a race at the Breeders' Cup World Championships goes to Dance Smartly, a filly who took the 1993 Queen's Plate in on her way to the Canadian Triple Crown title and then came back in the fall to win the Breeders' Cup Distaff. 

    Of course, no mention of Queen's Plate Champions is complete without the great Northern Dancer who won the 1964 Plate after capturing the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, the first two legs of the US Triple Crown.

    Queen's Plate Stakes FAQ

    • Queen's Plate Stakes or just "Queen's Plate" for short is Canada's oldest thoroughbred horse race and the oldest continuously run race in North America. It is the first race in the Canadian Triple Crown (Prince of Wales Stakes and Breeders' Stakes).

    • The Queen's Plate takes place at the Woodbine Race Track in Etobicoke, Ontario. The first race was run at the Carleton racetrack in Toronto. Woodbine was opened in 1956 with a one-mile oval tapeta track, as well as a seven-eights turf course. It has been extensively remodelled several times since 1993.

    • The Queen's Plate currently runs for 1 1/4 miles with a maximum of 17 competing horses. The race has been held at several distances over the years: 

      • 1860–1867: 1-mile (1.6 km) heats
      • 1868–1870: 2 miles (3.2 km)
      • 1871: ​1 3⁄4 miles (2.82 km)
      • 1872–1886: ​1 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km)
      • 1887–1923: ​1 1⁄4 miles (2.01 km)
      • 1924–1956: ​1 1⁄8 miles (1.811 km)

      The 162nd running of the Queens Plate Stakes will take place on Sunday, August 22, 2021.  

    • Originally, the Queen's Plate inaugural prize was a "plate to the value of 50 guineas". Currently, the total purse for the race is CAD 1 million and is divided between the top-four placers. Despite its name, the winner is awarded a cup instead of a plate.

      The winningest trainers are Harry Giddings, Jr. and Roger Attfield who have both won eight races each.

      And the winningest owner is Seagram Stables who accounts for 20 of the previous winners.

    • Royal patronage is when members of the Canadian Royal Family attend the event to give their patronage. The most recent visit from Queen Elizabeth to the Queen's Plate was in the summer of 2010.
