The Woodcote Stakes is a conditions flat horse race in Great Britain open to two-year-old Thoroughbreds. It is run over a distance of 6 furlongs and 3 yards (1,210 metres) at Epsom Downs in late May or early June.

History[edit]

The Woodcote Stakes, initially spelled Woodcot, was first run in 1794. It was run over the last half-mile of Epsom Downs Racecourse. Colts carried 8 st, with fillies carrying 7 st 1 lb.[1]

The race was not run between 1800 and 1806, but was re-established in 1807 and run over the last six furlongs of Epsom track. Colts carried 8 st 3 lb, with fillies carrying 8 st 0 lb.[2] The following year the race was reduced in distance to half a mile and the weights the horses carried increased by two pounds.[3] The weights rose by a further pound in 1812.[4] In 1839 the race was moved to the new two-year-old course and the distance was increased to six furlongs.[5] In 1842 the subscription fee was set at 15 sov. The weights were also changes, with horses carrying one pound less and the winner of the Two-year-old Stakes at Gorhambury carrying a five-pound penalty.[6] In 1844 the subscription was reduced to 10 sov.[7] In 1847 the weights were returned to what they were before 1842 and the penalty was removed.[8]

Winners of the race have included Leamington, Cremorne, Surefoot, Ladas, Sceptre, The Tetrarch, My Babu and My Swallow.

The Woodcote Stakes held Listed status prior to 2017[9] when it was downgraded, and is currently sponsored by Investec.
