The Fillies' Trial Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old fillies. It is run over a distance of 1 mile and 2 furlongs <small (2,012 metres) at Newbury in May.

History[edit]

The race was formerly called the Sandleford Priory Stakes.[1] It was named after Sandleford Priory, a historic building located to the south of Newbury.

The event was renamed in memory of Sir Charles Clore, a successful racehorse owner, in 1980.[2] It continued as the Sir Charles Clore Memorial Stakes until 1988.[3]

The title "Fillies' Trial Stakes" was introduced in 1989.[4] From this point the race was sponsored by William Hill, and it was later backed by Vodafone. Swettenham Stud took over the sponsorship in 2002 and backed the race until the 2014 running. Since 2015 it has been sponsored by Haras de Bouquetot.

The Fillies' Trial Stakes can serve as a trial for the Epsom Oaks. The last participant to win the Oaks was Dancing Rain, the runner-up in 2011.
