Burgess Queen Stakes Race History

The race was first held in 1982 when it was won by My Serene ridden by WA Hall Of Fame jockey Rod Kemp and trained by Frank Maynard. The race is named after the horse Burgess Queen who was trained by Frank Maynard and was unbeaten in seven starts as a two-year-old including the 1976 Karrakatta Plate and the 1977 Belmont Sprint carrying 51.5kg, then went on to win the Prince Of Wales Stakes, Lee Steere Stakes and A.J.Scahill Stakes as a three-year-old. As well as winning the inaugural edition of the race named after the horse he trained, Maynard went on to win the race with Achtung Bay in 1995 and Denver Dame in 1987.

Many fillies come through the Listed Belgravia Stakes as a lead-up to this race.
