King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes History


First staged in 1951, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes rapidly became one of the most prestigious races in the world of flat racing.

The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes is run over 1m 4f at Ascot. It's open to three-year-olds and above, meaning we often see a fascinating clash of generations.

It's one of three races on the British calendar that gets referred to as the King George. There's also the King George Stakes sprint at Glorious Goodwood, and the King George VI Chase run at Kempton over Christmas.

Only the Epsom Derby offers winners a bigger purse than the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. The race was added to the Breeders' Cup Challenge series in 2011, which helped it's global appeal rise even further.

Nijinsky won the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes during his incredible campaign in 1970. He was followed into the winners' enclosure by Mill Reef, Brigadier Gerard and Dahlia, who became the first two-time winner of the race in 1973 and '74.

Grundy, Shergar and Dancing Brave all celebrated victory in this prestigious Group One. Swain emulated Dahlia's achievement when he retained his crown in 1998.

Top sire Galileo backed up wins in the Epsom and Irish Derby by winning the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 2001. Other modern greats like Highland Reel, Nathaniel, Danedream and Enable have also won the King George.

Having won the race in 2017 and 2019, John Gosden's Enable completed a hat-trick in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, beating two of Aidan O'Brien's runners in a three-horse event.
