The Rose of Lancaster 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 Haydock Park over a distance of 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 95 yards (2,099 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early August.
The event was established in 1986, and it was initially called the "Summer Trophy". It was given its present title in 1989, and at the same time it was promoted from Listed to Group 3 status. For a period the race was sponsored by Burtonwood Brewery, and it was later backed by the property development company Petros. Its current sponsor, Totesport, began supporting the event in 2007.
The distance of the Rose of Lancaster Stakes was cut by 25 yards in 2009 – it had been previously contested over 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 120 yards.
