Although the Queen Elizabeth Stakes was established in 1955, at the time it was previously known as the Knights’ Royal Stakes before being renamed in honour of the reigning monarch.
The race is open to horses the age of 3 and over and was, for many years, run at Ascot annually in September before switching to October in 2011.
The first three winners of the event were all trained in France, including the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Stakes champion, Hafiz.
