The Coolmore America Justify Matron Stakes has been voted the highest rated race for fillies and mares by the Longines World Thoroughbred Rankings on two occasions since it was upgraded to a Group 1 in 2004. Amongst the previous winners of this race are some of the most illustrious, elite mares to grace the turf during the twenty first century including multiple Group 1-winning superstars Attraction, Soviet Song and Red Evie, while Champers Elysees gave former Champion jockey Johnny Murtagh his first Group 1 winner in 2020.
