Washington Singer Stakes

The Washington Singer Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Newbury over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in August.

The event is named after Washington Singer (1866–1934), who was a successful racehorse owner. It is currently restricted to horses which have not won at Group level, and whose sires achieved victory at distances in excess of 9½ furlongs or 1,900 metres. The race has been won by several subsequent Classic winners, including Rodrigo de Triano, Lammtarra and Haafhd.
