Ormonde Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open
to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Chester
over a distance of 1 mile, 5 furlongs and 89 yards (2,697 metres),
and it is scheduled to take place each year in May. The event is
named after Ormonde, a successful racehorse foaled at Eaton Hall,
Cheshire, in 1883. The original Ormonde Stakes was contested by
two-year-olds over 5 furlongs. The present version, initially a
race for horses aged three or older, was established in 1936.
During the period 1955 to 1957, the Ormonde Stakes was restricted
to three-year-olds and run over 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 10 yards.
The race is now confined to older horses, and it sometimes serves
as a trial for the Coronation Cup.
