Run on the synthetic footing of Woodbine, the Queen’s Plate precedes the Prince of Wales Stakes and the Breeders’ Stakes in the Canadian Triple Crown series. It is arguably our country’s most prestigious race.

Queen’s Plate Stakes Picks

The Woodbine Tapeta surface provides a unique handicapping challenge for those uninitiated to its quirks. Far different from races contested on conventional dirt or turf, the Tapeta and sweeping turns at Woodbine tend to promote stretch runners, but that certainly isn’t to say speed horses are at a disadvantage. In general, a race like the Queen’s Plate underscores the parity of racing on a synthetic track as the runners turn for home often three and four abreast in a wide-open duel.

With heart-pounding finishes the norm, the Queen’s Plate provides every thrill a bettor can ask for. A horse that has a proven affinity for the surface must be given extra attention when attempting to unlock a winner.

Of all the elite runners to win the Queen’s Plate, perhaps the two best-known are Awesome Again (1997) and Dance Smartly (1991). Both runners went on to capture important races in the United States after their triumphs in the Queen’s Plate. Dance Smartly, a filly, won the Canadian Triple Crown and later went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Distaff. Similarly, Awesome Again scored the biggest win of his career winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic in 1998.
