The Bro Park Sprint Championship is a Listed flat horse race in Sweden open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Bro Park over a distance of 1,150 metres (about 5¾ furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

History[edit]

The event was originally held at Ulriksdal as the Ulriksdallöpning. It was established in 1924, and was initially contested by horses aged two or older over 1,100 metres.

The race was transferred to Täby's Stockholm Cup International meeting in the early 1980s. For a period it was known as the Täby International Sprinter Stakes.

The Täby Open Sprint Championship was given Group 3 status in 1998. It was downgraded to Listed level in 2009. Täby Racecourse closed in May 2016 and the race was transferred to its replacement, Bro Park, from the 2016 running and renamed the Bro Park Sprint Championship.
