Famous Hampton Court Stakes Winners
The Hampton Court Stakes has been raced under several different titles over the years including the Churchill Stakes. It used to be held on the Saturday after Royal Ascot over a mile and a half. The race was given listed status in 1999 and cut to ten furlongs in 2001.
It did not become part of Royal Ascot until 2002 when the meeting was extended to five days. It was given Group 3 status and renamed the Tercentenary Stakes in 2011 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Ascot Racecourse. It reverted to the Hampton Court Stakes in 2017.
1993 winner White Muzzle finished runner-up in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. He was trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam and ridden by John Reid. He had won the Irish Derby prior to Royal Ascot where he started the 1-4 favourite. He was a 54-1 outsider in the Arc but he belied his odds, failing narrowly to catch Urban Sea.
2008 winner Collection was trained by William Haggas but became a high-class horse for John Moore in Hong Kong. His victories included the Hong Kong Derby and the Hong Kong Gold Cup. Hawkbill won the race for Godolphin and Charlie Appleby in 2016. The chestnut went on to win over £3.5 million in prize money. Major victories included the Group 1 Eclipse Stakes (2016) at Sandown and the Dubai Sheema Classic (2018) at Meydan.
Godolphin won it again the following season, this time with the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Benbatl. His career earnings reached a staggering £5.9 million before he was retired to stud in 2021. His most significant victories included the Dubai Turf and the Caulfield Stakes in 2018. The high quality of winners has been maintained in recent seasons with 2020 winner Russian Emperor and 2021 winner Mohaafeth.
Russian Emperor was with Aidan O’Brien when successful at Royal Ascot. He finished seventh in the Epsom Derby before being transferred to Douglas Whyte in Hong Kong. He was second in the Hong Kong Derby and won the Hong Kong Gold Cup in 2022. Mohaafeth side-stepped the Epsom Derby because of the ground and has been competing at Group 1 and Group 2 level since his Royal Ascot victory.
Key Hampton Court Stakes Trials
There are no clear-cut trials for the Hampton Court Stakes and it is interesting that none of the last twelve winners had raced at Ascot previously.
Half of them had won on their last outing and all but two of them had raced within the last 35 days.
The picture is no clearer for their next outing with a wide range of subsequent targets.
Only two of the twelve won their next start; Pisco Sour won the Prix Eugene Adam at Maison-Laffitte in 2011 and Hawkbill won the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park in 2016.
Three of them ran in the International Stakes at York later in the season but all were beaten.
Hampton Court Stakes Betting Trends
There have been five winning favourites in the Hampton Court Stakes in the last twelve seasons; Afsare (2010), Remote (2013), Cannock Chase (2014), Time Test (2015) and Mohaafeth (2021). The latter was the shortest priced winner of the five at odds of 11-8 favourite. With three second favourites also successful during the same period, the race has largely gone the way of the punters.
The only shock result in recent years was the 20-1 victory of Hughie Morrison’s Pisco Sour in 2011. Energizer (2012) returned at 15-2, Sangarius (2019) at 13-2 and Hawkbill (2016) at 11-2.
An official rating of 103 or higher is normally required to win this race. In the last twelve seasons only Cannock Chase (2014) has fallen below that mark on 97.
The highest officially rated winner was Benbatl (2017) who won when rated 113. Energizer (2012) and Mohaafeth (2011) were just 2lbs lower on 111.
Hampton Court Stakes – Top Trainers and Jockeys
Aidan O’Brien leads the official standings as top trainer in the history of the Hampton Court Stakes with four winners; Moscow Ballet (2004), Indigo Cat (2005), Hunting Horn (2018) and Russian Emperor (2020). He surpassed Peter Chapple-Hyam, Sir Henry Cecil and Sir Michael Stoute who have trained three winners apiece. Chapple-Hyam’s three winners all came between 1993 and 1998.
Ryan Moore is the top jockey in the race with four winners. He rode Hunting Horn and Russian Emperor for O’Brien and had previously been successful aboard Glass Harmonium (2009) and Cannock Chase (2014), both trained by Sir Michael Stoute.
