The Feilden Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old horses. It is run over a distance of 1 mile and 1 furlong (1,811 metres) on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket in mid-April.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1978, and it was originally called the Heath Stakes.[1] The first running was won by Hawaiian Sound.

The race was renamed the Gerry Feilden Memorial Stakes in 1982.[2] It was named in memory of Major General Sir Randle Feilden (1904–81), a former senior steward of the Jockey Club.[3] Its title was shortened to the Feilden Stakes in 1987.

The event can serve as a trial for various Classic races. The runner-up in 1994, Erhaab, subsequently won the Epsom Derby, as did the 2015 winner, Golden Horn. The 2013 winner, Intello, went on to win the Prix du Jockey Club.

The Feilden Stakes is currently held on the opening day of Newmarket's three-day Craven Meeting. It is run two dayx before the Craven Stakes.
