About The Duke of Cambridge Stakes
One of the most recent additions to the Royal Ascot festival, the Duke of Cambridge Stakes takes place on Day 2 of Ascot and has been contested since 2004. Giving older fillies and mares a chance to race at the Royal meeting, this one-mile contest has been a key race for returning older horses to run once again at Ascot.
Originally called the Windsor Forest Stakes, it's now one of several races available for older fillies to compete in, allowing them to extend their racing career. Renamed to its current title in 2013, the race is open specifically to fillies and mares aged four-year-old and over and if competitors have previously won a Group 1 and Group 2 race, they will be given a weight penalty.
Given the race has a shorter history than others, many jockeys have tried their hand to land a win, but if you prefer to follow that stat, it's William Buick who leads the stats with three wins. The most recent of those wins for William Buick came in 2022 with Saffron Beach for Jane Chapple Hyam.
When it comes to leading trainers, two trainers have managed to land four wins between them, John Gosden and Sir Michael Stoute, which shows the domination of British trainers.
