Ridgewood Pearl Stakes

The Ridgewood Pearl Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged four years or older. It is run at the Curragh over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

The event is named in honour of the Irish-trained filly Ridgewood Pearl, the 1995 Cartier Horse of the Year, who died in May 2003. The title was first adopted by a different race, the 2003 running of what is now called the Renaissance Stakes. The present Ridgewood Pearl Stakes was established in 2004, and it was initially given Group 2 status. It was downgraded to Group 3 level in 2007. In 2010 it was run as the TRI Equestrian Stakes.
