Famous Chalice Stakes Winners
The Chalice Stakes was first run at Newbury in 2000 with victory going to Miss Lorilaw, trained by Charles Hills and ridden by Michael Hills. The race continued to be staged at the Berkshire track until being moved to Newmarket in 2015.
Love Everlasting won the second and third renewals for Mark Johnston. In 2001 she won here after finishing second in the listed Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket. She did not win again until returning to Newbury in 2002, although she had finished second in a Group 3 at Ascot the previous Autumn. She won the Group 3 Princess Royal Willmott Dixon Stakes on the final start of her career in October 2002.
2005 winner Punctilious was a high-class filly owned by Godolphin. She won the Musidora Stakes and Ribblesdale Stakes in 2004 and was third to Ouija Board in the Epsom Oaks. The following season she won the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks.
Seal of Approval won the race in 2013 for James Fanshawe and George Baker. After winning this race she was an unlucky loser in the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster, clipping heels and falling with a furlong to run. She made amends by winning the Group 1 British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes at Ascot in October. Starting at 16-1, she beat a high-class field that included Oaks winner Talent and Prix de L’Opera winner Dalkala.
Key Chalice Stakes Trials
The Chalice Stakes often attracts fillies who have been racing in higher-grade races. 2021 winner Save A Forest had finished a remote fourth to Snowfall in the Epsom Oaks on her previous start. 2022 winner Emotion had run in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot.
The Aphrodite Stakes at the July meeting is another useful guide. Dual winner Love Everlasting and 2019 winner Love So Deep are among those to have contested that race.
Chalice Stakes Betting Trends
Favourites have a poor record in the Chalice Stakes. Only Katara (2020) has won as the clear market leader in the last ten seasons. Silk Sari (2014) won as the 9-4 joint-favourite for Luca Cumani and Andrea Atzeni.
However, it rarely produces a shock result with Safe A Forest (2021) and Emotion (2022) being the longest-priced winners during that period at 13-2. Six of the last ten renewals were won by three-year-olds and the remaining four went to four-year-olds. Official winning ratings varied between 101 (Silk Sari) and 108 (To Eternity 2017).
Chalice Stakes – Top Trainers and Jockeys
Two trainers have won the Chalice Stakes on three occasions; Mark Johnston and John Gosden.
Johnston’s victories came with Love Everlasting (2001 and 2002) and Fireglow (2016). Gosden won it with Gretchen (2015), To Eternity (2017) and Emotion (2022). The leading jockey is Andrea Atzeni, successful on Ambivalent (2012), Silk Sari (2014) and Emotion (2022).
