The Beeswing Stakes was a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It was run at Newcastle over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it was scheduled to take place each year in late July.

History[edit]

The event was named after Beeswing, a successful 19th-century racehorse bred in Northumberland. It was established in 1977, and for a period it held Listed status. It was promoted to Group 3 level in 1986.

The Beeswing Stakes was last run in 1999. It was replaced the following year by a similar race, the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood.

Newcastle currently stages a 7-furlong handicap race called the Beeswing Handicap.
