The Cumberland Lodge Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early October.

History[edit]

The event is named after Cumberland Lodge, the location of a successful 18th-century stud. It was the birthplace of the racehorses Herod and Eclipse.

The Cumberland Lodge Stakes was established in 1951, and it was initially contested over two miles. It was shortened by half a mile in 1952.

The race was titled the John Collier Stakes in 1965, and the David Robinson Stakes in 1967. The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the event was classed at Group 3 level.

The Cumberland Lodge Stakes was formerly held in September, but it was switched to early October in 2011.
