Famous Kachy Stakes Winners

The race was originally run as the Cleves Stakes in 2007 with victory going to King Orchisios, trained by Kevin Ryan and ridden by Neil Callan. Clive Brittain won the race the following year with Excusez Moi, ridden by Liam Jones.

David Barron won it in 2010 and 2011 with Jaconet and Waveband and Karl Burke trained the first dual winner with Rivellino (2015 and 2016).

Lancelot Du Lac won it as a seven-year-old in 2017, trained by Dean Ivory and ridden by Robert Winston. He enjoyed the biggest win of his career later that year when winning the prestigious Stewards Cup at Glorious Goodwood. He started at odds of 25-1 at the Sussex track where he was ridden by Frankie Dettori.

Kachy won the race in 2018 and 2019 for Tom Dascombe and Richard Kingscote. He won nine of his 28 career starts, including breaking the Lingfield track record. Kachy won the All-Weather Sprint Championships in 2019 and ran the race of his life when beaten only a neck into third behind Battaash in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock.

He was also third in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2019. The race was renamed in his honour after he tragically suffered a fatal injury at Lingfield in 2020.

Key Kachy Stakes Trials

Although there are no specific trials for the Kachy Stakes, most previous winners had been racing on the all-weather on their previous start. Form at Newcastle and Wolverhampton as well as Lingfield often features here.

Past winners have sometimes gone on to make their mark back on turf, most obviously Stewards Cup winner Lancelot Du Lac.

Kachy himself had so much raw speed that he was very competitive at Group level.

There have been three winning outright favourites and one co-favourite in the last ten renewals.

Tarooq (2014) won as the 5-1 co-favourite while Kachy (6-4 and 10-11) and Good Effort (13-8) all won as market leader from 2018 to 2020.

The only shock result during that period was the 20-1 victory of Exalted Angel in 2021.

Tarooq (2014) was the oldest winner at the age of eight and there have been three winning four-year-olds, the most recent being Spycatcher in 2022.
