The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1868, and it was originally called the All-Aged Stakes. It was renamed the Cork and Orrery Stakes in 1926, in honour of the 9th Earl of Cork, who served as the Master of the Buckhounds in the 19th century.

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the Cork and Orrery Stakes was initially classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1998.

The race was renamed to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2002. From this point it held Group 1 status. In 2012 after ten years, the race was renamed to the current name Diamond Jubilee Stakes to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes became part of a new international race series, the Global Sprint Challenge, in 2005. In 2013 it is the sixth leg of the series, preceded by the King's Stand Stakes and followed by the July Cup.

The race is now contested on the final day of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
