Group One

Group One or Group 1 is the term used for the highest level of Thoroughbred and Standardbred stakes races in many countries. Group One (G1) races may be run under handicap or weight-for-age conditions and may be also restricted to age groups or a stipulated gender.

In the United States, Canada and Japan, "Grade I" is used instead. These races attract the best horses, and are for very large stake money.
