Give Thanks Stakes

The Give Thanks 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 Cork over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early August.

The event is named in honour of Give Thanks, the winner of the Irish Oaks in 1983. For a period it was classed at Listed level, and it was then promoted to its present status, Group 3, in 2007.
