Wokingham Stakes

The Wokingham Stakes is a flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

The event is named after the town of Wokingham, which is seven miles to the west of Ascot Racecourse. It was established in 1813, and it is the oldest surviving handicap race at the venue. For the early part of its history it was usually divided into two or three separate classes – it became a single race in 1874.

The Wokingham Stakes is presently contested on the final day of the Royal Ascot meeting.
