of the best races of the season and the first of six Group 1 races on
Longines Irish Champions Weekend, the Coolmore America 'Justify' Matron
Stakes was won in great style by Legatissimo in 2015, her third
top-level success of that season. Alice Springs was even more impressive when
winning the following year and for good measure she went on to take the Group 1
Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket next time out. Other notable
recent winners include the likes of Soviet Song, Lush Lashes and Lillie
Langtry. The 2017 renewal was particularly strong with Hydrangea and Winter,
both trained by Aidan O'Brien, fighting out a thrilling race which
was to be ranked as the world’s best fillies and mares’ race of the year. In
2018, the Karl Burke-trained Laurens just got the better of big local hope
Alpha Centauri. No Speak Alexander sprung a surprise in 2021 to win the race in dramatic fashion.
