Famous Albany Stakes Winners
The Albany Stakes was introduced in 2002 as the Henry Carnarvon Stakes and was classed as a Listed race.
The inaugural running was won by Duty Paid, trained by David Elsworth and ridden by Richard Quinn. The name was changed the following season and the race was promoted to Group 3 status in 2005.
The 2006 renewal was won by Sander Camilio, trained by Jeremy Noseda and ridden by Frankie Dettori. She followed up with a brilliant five lengths victory in the Group 2 Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket in July. Sander Camilio did not reappear until the Nell Gwyn Stakes the following April where she was sent off the 4-7 favourite. She weakened close home and was beaten a neck by Scarlet Runner and was retired after failing to reproduce her best form in three subsequent races.
2011 winner Samitar was trained by Mick Channon and ridden by Jamie Spencer. She was narrowly beaten in the Tattersalls Millions next time before being placed in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster and the Group 1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket. Beaten only a head by Lyric of Light, she gained handsome consolation in the £300,000 Tattersalls Millions 2-y-o fillies’ trophy on her final start as a juvenile.
Samitar was well beaten in the French Guineas but bounced back to win the Irish 1000 Guineas in 2012. She continued her racing career for Chad Brown in America, gaining her biggest victory in the Grade 1 Garden Filly Stakes at Belmont Park.
The 2013 Albany Stakes was won in eye-catching style by Kiyoshi, trained by Charles Hills. She stormed clear, despite hanging badly to her right in the final stages. She finished third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes and the Cheveley Park Stakes, leaving her not far behind the best juvenile fillies in Europe. She never quite returned to her brilliant best as a three-year-old, although she did win the Group 3 Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster.
Brave Anna sprang a 16-1 surprise in this race for Aidan O’Brien in 2016 when beating Bletchley by a short-head. Punters preferred the claims of stable companion Cuff who could finish no closer than fifth. It was a similar story in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes in September. This time she drifted out to 25-1 but denied another O’Brien runner in Roly Poly by a short-head.
Key Albany Stakes Trials
There are no clearly established trials for the Albany Stakes, although 11 of the last 12 winners had been successful last time out.
Speedy juvenile fillies usually target the five-furlong Queen Mary Stakes at Ascot so those chosen to run here have more potential to stay a mile later in the season.
Half of the last dozen Albany Stakes winners have gone on to contest the Cherry Hinton Stakes (now the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes) at Newmarket’s July Festival. Four of them were successful; Memory (2010), Illuminate (2015), Dandalla (2020) and Sandrine (2021). The same number went on to run in the Cheveley Park Stakes but only Brave Anna (2016) won that Group 1 race.
Albany Stakes Betting Trends
There have only been three successful favourites in the Albany Stakes in the last twelve seasons; Newfangled at 7-4 (2012), Illuminate at 4-1 (2015) and Daahyeh at the same price (2019). Only a further two winners were in the first three in the betting.
The longest priced winner during that period was Different League (2017) at 20-1 for Matthieu Palussiere and Antoine Hamelin. Samitar (2011), Brave Anna (2016) and Sandrine (2021) all returned at 16-1.
One eye-catching statistic is that 11 of the 12 were drawn in stall 12 or higher. The only horse drawn low to finish first was Sandrine.
All but one of them had at least one previous victory and nine of them had winning form over six furlongs.
Albany Stakes – Top Trainers and Jockeys
The leading trainer in the history in the short history of the Albany Stakes is Mick Channon. He won three of the first ten renewals with Silca’s Gift (2003), Nijoom Dubai (2007) and Samitar (2011).
Jeremy Noseda won it in consecutive seasons with La Chunga (2005) and Sander Camilio (2006) and Richard Hannon was successful with Jewel In The Sand (2004) and Memory (2010).
In more recent seasons, Roger Varian saddled Cursory Glance (2014) and Daahyeh (2019).
Top jockey honours in this race rest with Jamie Spencer who has won it four times. He struck for the first time with La Chunga (2005) followed by victories on the Mick Channon duo Nijoom Dubai (2007) and Samitar (2011). His most recent success came aboard Kiyoshi (2013).
Richard Hughes won it three times aboard Jewel In The Sand (2004), Memory (2010) and Illuminate (2015).
Betting on the Albany Stakes
The Albany Stakes has proved tricky for punters with only three successful favourites in recent years.

The winner could be worth following, certainly if aimed at the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at the Newmarket July Festival.
How long is the Albany Stakes?
The Albany Stakes is 6 furlongs long.
Where is the Albany Stakes held?
