History

Aspirations won the inaugural Emancipation Stakes when it was first run in 1985.

Up until 1996, the Emancipation Stakes was a listed race. From 1996 to 1998 the race was a Group 3, and in 1999 it became a Group 2 event.

Prior winners include Amberino (2009), Kosi Bay (2008), Hot Danish (2007), Fantasia (2006) and Perfect Promise (2005).

The Emancipation Stakes is named after a horse called Emancipation. She was not raced as a two year old, but at three she had thirteen starts and won ten of them. She also did extremely well as a four year old by having fifteen starts and winning nine of them. In 1983/84, Emancipation won Australian Horse of the Year.

The Emancipation Stakes is sometimes used as a lead-up event to the Scone Cup.
