Solonaway Stakes

The Solonaway Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to thoroughbreds aged three 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 September.

The event was formerly classed at Listed level, and in the early 1990s it was contested over 1 mile. It was extended by a furlong in 1993, and it returned to its previous distance in 2001. The race was promoted to its present status, Group 3, in 2007.
