Queen Anne Stakes

The Queen Anne Stakes is a flat, Group 1 horse race. It takes place in the UK, open to 4-year-old and above thoroughbreds. The race is run over a mile (8 furlongs) and is held at Ascot Racecourse annually in June on the first day of the Royal Ascot festival.

The race first took place in 1840, then known as the Trial Stakes. In 1930 the name was changed to The Queen Anne Stakes in honor of Queen Anne who founded Ascot racecourse nearly three hundred years ago. 2003 saw the race upgraded to Group 1 status after it initially started out as a Group 3 event.
