The Palace House Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run over a distance of 5 furlongs (1,006 metres) on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket in late April or early May.

History[edit]

The event is named after Palace House, a famous building in Newmarket on the site of a royal residence of King Charles II.[1]

The race was established in 1961, and the first running was won by Galivanter.[2] It was given Group 3 status when the present grading system was introduced in 1971.

The Palace House Stakes is currently held on the opening day of Newmarket's Guineas Festival meeting. It is run on the same day as the 2,000 Guineas.
