Entries were drawn and post positions selected this morning for the 143nd running of the Queen's Plate, the oldest continuously run stakes race in North America. A field of 14 horses was entered with Plate Trial winner Shaws Creek made a lukewarm morning line favorite at 3-1. For the first time a new rule was used that allows horses with the same ownership to run uncoupled in races of $1 million or more, so the two horses from Sam-Son Farm will run as separate betting interests.
Below are the entries for the Queen's Plate. Distance is 1 1/4 miles, purse is $1,000,000, and all horses carry 126 pounds. Click the horse's name to see full info on him including a photo.
