History

The event was established in 1980, and it was initially called the New Stand Stakes. The inaugural running was the first race at that year's Glorious Goodwood meeting, and it commemorated the opening of a new grandstand at the venue by Queen Elizabeth II.

The race was titled the Royal Wedding Day Stakes in 1981, as it took place on the same day as the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana.

The present registered title, which acknowledges the link between Goodwood and the Oak Tree Racing Association of California, was introduced in 1982. An event called the Goodwood Stakes was staged during the Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita Park in October but was renamed the Awesome Again Stakes in 2012. The Goodwood race was sponsored by L'Omarins from 2014 to 2018 and named the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate to link the race with the South African race of that name. [1]

For a period the Oak Tree Stakes was classed at Listed level. It was promoted to Group 3 status in 2004.

The race is currently held on the fourth day of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting.
