There are a number of lead-up races that are usually a good indication for the Queen of the South Stakes that punters should keep an eye on, including some of the more prestigious and lucrative races of the carnival like the Group 2 Yallambee Stud Classic (1200m) for three-year-olds at set weights. Watching for the dominant females in the Stud Classic is a great way to gauge which fillies and mares will last the increased distance of the Queen of the South Stakes. Another high status race that the females may contest earlier in the season is the Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m). For three-year-old fillies at set weights, the Australasian Oaks is one of the premier Adelaide racing events and the females who contend this staying race should have little trouble in the Queen of the South Stakes.

Many of the major online bookmakers open a great range of betting markets on the Queen of the South Stakes and it is an excellent opportunity to place a wager on some of Australia’s finest fillies and mares. So next Adelaide racing carnival see if the quality females in this race can bring you home some winnings!
