The Chipchase Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Newcastle over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late June or early July.
The event was established in 1994, and it was initially classed at Listed level. It was promoted to Group 3 status in 2001. Throughout its history the Chipchase Stakes has been run on the same afternoon as Newcastle's richest race, the Northumberland Plate.
The Chipchase Stakes is currently sponsored by The Tote under its totesport.com brand.
