The Craven Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old colts and geldings. It is run over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres) on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket in mid-April.

Contents

History

The event is named after William Craven, 6th Baron Craven, [1] a member of the Jockey Club in the 18th century. His support for racing at Newmarket led to the introduction of the Craven Meeting in 1771. [2]

The first race had a subscription of 5 guineas, to which 21 subscribed. It was to be run "from the ditch to the turn of the lands." [3] The race was won by Pantaloon, owned by a Mr Vernon. Fourteen horses had taken part.

An open-age version of the Craven Stakes was staged annually until the 1870s. [4] It traditionally took place on a Monday in April, and was usually Newmarket's first race of the season. Several other venues had a race of the same name.

The present race, a one-mile event for three-year-olds, was established in 1878. [5] The inaugural running was won by Thurio.

The modern version of the Craven Stakes can serve as a trial for the 2,000 Guineas. The first horse to win both races was Scot Free in 1884. The most recent was Haafhd in 2004.

The Craven Stakes is currently held on the second day of Newmarket's three-day Craven Meeting.

Soothsayer (horse) British-bred Thoroughbred racehorse

Soothsayer (1808–1827) was a British Thoroughbred racehorse and sire best known for winning the classic St Leger Stakes in 1811. Bred and originally trained in Yorkshire he won the St Leger on his third racecourse appearance when still unnamed. He was later sold and trained for the remainder of his racing career at Newmarket where he won a valuable sweepstakes in 1812 and a match race against the Derby winner Phantom in 1813. He later became a successful breeding stallion, siring two classic winners and being the Leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland in 1819. He was later exported to Russia where he died in 1827.

Hollandoise, or alternatively Hollandaise, (1775–1782) was a grey British Thoroughbred mare that won the 1778 St. Leger Stakes, the first horse to win the event under its formal title. Raced sporadically from 1778 to 1782, Hollandoise won eight races in 14 starts. She died suddenly shortly after her last race in 1782 before producing any offspring.
