Famous Palace House Stakes Winners

The Palace House Stakes was first run in 1961 with victory going to Galivanter. The race was awarded Group 3 status in 1971 and has held that status ever since. The Palace House Stakes is often on the agenda of the leading sprinters and the roll of honour is littered with Group 1 winning sprinters.

1994 winner Lochsong was trained by Ian Balding and ridden by Frankie Dettori. The brilliant mare won fifteen of her 27 starts. She worked her way up the handicap in 1992, taking the Stewards Cup, Portland Handicap and Ayr Gold Cup. Lochsong then established herself as the Champion Sprinter of Europe in 1993, winning the King George, Nunthorpe and Prix de l’Abbaye. She won here prior to adding the King’s Stand Stakes, a second King George and Prix de l’Abbaye in 1994.

Speedsters to win here since 2000 include Pipalong (2000), Kyllachy (2002), Frizzante (2004), Avonbridge (2005) and Equiano (2010).

Mayson won here in 2012 for Richard Fahey and Paul Hanagan and went on to win the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket. Sole Power became the first dual winner in 2013 and 2014 and was joined on that mark by Mabs Cross (2018, 2019). 2017 winner Marsha went on to win the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York for Sir Mark Prescott.
