The Coronation Stakes is a flat, Group 1 horse race. It is held in the UK and open to 3-year-old thoroughbred fillies. The race takes place over 1600 meters (1 mile) at Ascot Racecourse annually in June.
The first running of the race took place in 1840 in celebration of the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838.
The Coronation Stakes is the fillies' equivalent to the St. James's Palace Stakes and received Group 1 status in 1988. The race is part of the Royal Ascot festival, and is run on the fourth day of the meeting for a purse of 250,000 pounds.
