Sun Chariot Stakes History
Named in honour of fillies' Triple Crown winner Sun Chariot, which was successful in 1942 when the fillies' races were staged at Newmarket due to the war.
Established in 1966, the Sun Chariot Stakes was elevated to Group 1 status in 2004 when being taken out by Attraction for Mark Johnson and jockey Kevin Darley.
Formerly held on the final day of the Cambridgeshire meeting, it was moved to a week later in 2014 and is now a stand-alone Group 1 in October.
It has been won by many champion fillies and mares, but Sahpresa stands out with three consecutive wins from 2009-2011.
The French-trained runner dominated the race for three years and it's unlikely punters will ever see that feat repeated.
Lester Piggott won six times as a jockey and Luca Cumani won six times as a trainer, with his most recent win coming in 1998 with Kissogram.
The more recent times the Sun Chariot Stakes has been dominated by jockey Ryan Moore, who won with Integral in 2014, Alice Springs in 2016 and Roly Poly in 2017.
Both Alice Springs and Roly Poly were trained by Aidan O'Brien.
Karl Burke's popular filly, Laurens beat Aidan O'Brien's Happily to win the 2018 Sun Chariot Stakes. Former Guineas winner, Billesdon Brook came out victorious the following year, with Nazeef handing John Gosden an overdue second Sun Chariot victory in 2020.
