It was a messy renewal of the QIPCO British Champions Series contest but Queen’s Trust was confirming the high opinion that Sir Michael Stoute, her trainer, has of her.
She confirmed herself a very smart performer when third behind Seventh Heaven and Found in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks, before filling the same position in the QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot.
Before those two efforts she had been an eyecatching fourth in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot, and she signed off the year with a last-gasp success in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.
Queen’s Trust finished last of four in the Middleton Stakes on her return in 2017 but ran much better than the bare form indicates on soft ground that was against her.
She proved as much when two lengths fourth to Highland Reel in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot next time, when many observers felt she would have finished even closer but for coming from an unpromising position in the straight.
Queen’s Trust found the ground too soft in the Qatar Nassau Stakes next time but was a creditable third to Enable in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks before finishing a staying-on fifth when defending her Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf crown over 9f at Del Mar.
