About The Chesham Stakes
Contested annually at Royal Ascot, the Chesham Stakes is the opening race on the final day of the meeting, which normally falls on a Saturday in June. Run over a distance of seven furlongs (originally six furlongs), the race is open to horses aged two years and older, but they have to have to follow specific criteria to be eligible to compete.
The race was first run in 1919 and is named after the 3rd Baron of Chesham. Since its inception has undergone a few rule and distance changes, and although the race is now open to two-year-olds, it's now restricted to runners sired by a stallion who has won over a distance of 1 mile and two furlongs.
When it comes to success in this race, Lester Piggott has the most listed winners passing the post first on seven occasions. However, since 1986, jockey Ryan Moore is looking to become leading jockey and has landed five wins, the most recent in 2021 with Point Lonsdale, and he will be looking to add more to his total in the renewal of the race.
As well as a host of wins for Ryan Moore, this race has also been a positive place to visit for Aiden O’Brien, who has also picked six wins in the Chesham Stakes and become the most successful trainer, Moore being in the saddle for five of those.
