The Darley Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 1 mile and 1 furlong (1,811 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in October.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1987, but the inaugural running was abandoned because of high winds and structural damage.[1] For a period the race held Listed status, and it was promoted to Group 3 level in 2003.

The Darley Stakes was formerly staged during Newmarket's Champions' Meeting in mid-October. It became part of a new fixture called Future Champions Day in 2011.
