The Phoenix Stakes is a Group 1 race run under Set Weight conditions for two year old colts and fillies at the Curragh conducted by the Curragh Racecourse for Horse Racing Ireland.
The Phoenix Stakes is run over six furlongs. It was first run in 1902 and was won by Bushey Belle.
This was the shortest G1 run in Ireland before the addition of the Flying Five Stakes.
The first runnings of the Phoenix Stakes were at Phoenix Park and known as the Phoenix Plate. It was over the short course. After Phoenix Park closed in 1990, it went to Leopardstown then the Curragh in 2002.
