Current Queen's Plate odds show Skywire at 4/1 and Federal Law at 15/1.

Casse has won the Plate twice previously and both times with fillies, Lexie Lou in 2014 and Wonder Gadot last year. Ladies have won 37 races and the last two.

Meanwhile, trainer Josie Carroll, the only female trainer to ever win, aims for her third Queen's Plate victory and will saddle the pre-race favourite Avie's Flatter. This horse is the favourite and currently, its price is on 5/2.

Avie's Flatter To Win the Queen's Plate

The last key prep race for the Queen's Plate is the Plate Trial Stakes, run three weeks ago and won by longshot Pay For Peace, with Casse's Federal Law running second. The Team Penney Racing entry has 15/1 winner odds.

The Longshot Odds and High Favorite Horses to Watch

  • Desert Ride (8/1): Filly has three wins in four starts since starting her career in the US. Took a big step up to win the Woodbine Oaks, the same route as 2017 Plate winner Holy Helena. 
  • Moon Swings (30/1): One of the most experienced runners in the field is always on the fringes but has yet to win in 9 lifetime starts, all at Woodbine.
  • Krachenwagen (50/1): Another that has done all his running at Woodbine, he only has a maiden win to his name seven starts back.
  • One Bad Boy (7/2): California-based runner's biggest claim to fame is running second to 2019 Kentucky Derby pre-favourite Omaha Beach last year at Santa Anita, comes in off a second-place finish on the synthetic track at Golden Gate Fields. 
  • Lucas 'N Lori (50/1): Well defeated in his last two starts at a much lower level and lacks the speed to stay with these. 
  • Federal Law (15/1): Looked like the winner until passed late by Pay For Peace in the Plate Trial after leading all the way. A move forward from that effort makes him a live longshot here.
  • He's A Macho Man (15/1): Lightly raced colt whose sire won the 2013 Breeders' Cup Classic. Lacks experience and taking a big step up in class he's but also has lots of untapped upsides.

Queens plate horses and odds

  • Suitedconnected (50/1): Has yet to come close to winning outside of his maiden victory and seems in over his head in this group.
  • Tone Broke (6/1): Comes in with lots of hype after running second to King For A Day in the Sir Barton Stakes at Pimlico. It's impressive when one considers that, in his next out outing, King For A Day defeated Kentucky Derby disqualified winner Maximum Security
  • Jammin' Still (30/1): Is 0-4 since his maiden win last year, and has been well-defeated in three previous tries at the stakes level. 
  • Rising Star (30/1): Still without a win in eight lifetime starts, he had to check on the backstretch in the Plate Trial and then came flying late up the rail to get up for third from last.

Who Will Win the Queen’s Plate

It's tough to bet against Mark Casse - plus it's just as tough to find value in a Casse-trained horse. So, our Queen's Plate pick can take care of both those things by putting Skywire on top here. He should love the added distance and as a horse still learning to race he could be sitting on a career best effort. 

Skywire To win the Queen's Plate
Sports Interaction

Hoping to cash in on the exacta we'll take another horse that could take a step forward in He's A Macho Man, who seemed to loved the Woodbine track last time out and another for whom the distance shouldn't be a problem. 

On class alone Avie's Flatter is a serious contender to win but, unlike the top two, the distance may be an issue. To round out the top four we'll go with Federal Law, typically a front-runner who trainer Casse has said will try to come from off the pace this time. Here are horses for Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta exotic box betting - Payouts could be rich with these runners: 

  • 1) #10 - Skywire
  • 2) #8 - He's A Macho Man
  • 3) #14 - Avie's Flatter
  • 4) #7 - Federal Law

What are the Types of Odds

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 2019

The 2019 Queen's Plate is Saturday, June 29 at 5:36 PM Eastern. 

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 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)
    • 1957-: ​1 1⁄4 miles (2.01 km)
  • The Queen's Plate commonly takes place during the summer. This year, it takes place from June 28 to 29. A festival accompanies this event, which features parties with food and drinks and post-event concert.  

  • 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.

  • Up to 17 three-year-old thoroughbred horses participate at the Queen's Plate. Owners must pay three separate fees prior to the race.

  • As far as winningest jockeys, we have a three-way tie between Avelino Gomez, Sandy Hawley, and Robin platts who each won four races each.

    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.
