Tercentenary Stakes Stakes
The Tercentenary Stakes is a listed race run on day three of the Royal Ascot meeting.
The Hampton Stakes was first registered as the ‘New Stakes’, a listed race run on the Saturday following the Royal Ascot meeting. The race was officially absorbed into the Royal Ascot meeting in 2002 as part of the Royal Jubilee celebrations, when it was renamed after the Tudor Royal Residence.
The Tercentenary Stakes is run over one mile and two furlongs and is open to three-year-old and over thoroughbred racehorses.
Tercentenary Stakes Winners
Although it is technically possible for a racehorse to win two consecutive Tercentenary Stakes races, this has not yet occurred in the short history of the race.
Although several top English flat racing jockeys have achieved wins in the Tercentenary Stakes, none has managed to do so twice. Top Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien has made a point of going after the Tercentenary Stakes since the race was launched in 2002. During this period he has trained two Tercentenary Stakes winners.
Tercentenary Stakes Betting
The Tercentenary Stakes is a popular race amongst punters, as potential winners are relatively easy to identify based on form and stable of origin. Further, short-odds winners consistently finish placed and there has been only one serious upset in the history of the race.
