Royal Ascot: Wokingham Stakes
The Wokingham Stakes, contested on the final day of the Royal meeting, is a flat handicap over 6 furlongs open to horses aged three years or older. The race is named after Wokingham, a market town 7.7 miles to the west of Ascot, and was established in 1813, the inaugural running being won by Pointers, owned by the Duke of York. For a number of years the Wokingham Stakes was divided into two or three separate classes, but it became a single race in 1874. |
