Railway Stakes (Ireland)
The Railway Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at the Curragh 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 formerly classed at Group 3 level, and it was promoted to its current status, Group 2, in 2003. The race is part of the Curragh's three-day Irish Derby Festival meeting. It is presently run on day three, the same day as the Irish Derby.
