The Colin Stephen Quality is a distance handicap race that's run over the same course & distance as the Group 1 The Metropolitan, which is held on the final day of the Randwick spring carnival. This race has proven to be a great guide in recent times.
In the past few years Railings (2005), Dress Circle (2001), Coco Cobana (2000), Vita Man (1999), In Joyment (1998), Heart Ruler (1997) and Hula Flight (1996) have all won this race before going on to win the The Metropolitan the following week.
A number of horses have won or placed in both races over the years, while Herculian Prince (5th in 2010) backed up to win The Metropolitan at his next start and No Wine No Song (2010) ran third behind him.
The Colin Stephen Quality has proven to be a top recent guide to major staying races during the Randwick racing carnival, especially on Epsom Handicap day. It typically attracts horses who may have contested the listed Premier's Cup at Rosehill or the Gr3 Newcastle Gold Cup at Newcastle.
Stampede (2019) ran second in the Gr3 Kingston Town Stakes over 2000m at Randwick before leading all the way to score a quality victory in this event for the gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable.
Recent Colin Stephen Quality winners include Miss Admiration (2018) and Auvray (2017).
