Brownstown Stakes

The Brownstown Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older. It is run at Fairyhouse over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early July.

The event was formerly classed at Listed level, and it used to be run over a distance of 1 mile. It was promoted to Group 3 status and cut to 7 furlongs in 2003. The race was transferred to Fairyhouse in 2009 – before this it was held at Leopardstown.
