Silver Flash Stakes
The Silver Flash Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Leopardstown over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in July.
The event was formerly held in early September at Phoenix Park, where it was run over 7 furlongs and classed at Listed level. It was transferred to Leopardstown in 1991, and for the first two years it was contested in late October. The race was switched to early June in 1993, and simultaneously its distance was cut to 6 furlongs. It was moved to July in 1999, and its length was restored to 7 furlongs in 2007.
The Silver Flash Stakes was promoted to its present status, Group 3, in 2008.
