The Nunthorpe Stakes is a Group 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for the sprinters at York conducted by the York Racecourse.
The Nunthorpe Stakes is run over five furlongs. It was first run in 1922 and was won by Two Step.
The race was named after the geographic area of Yorkshire.
Two year olds are eligible to run in this open Group 1 – the only one in the UK. Geldings are also allowed which isn't the case in others.
The Nunthorpe Stakes, along with the King's Stand Stakes, are the only five furlong Group 1s in England.
The Nunthorpe Stakes is run on the third day of the Ebor Festival at York. The 2008 edition was run at Newmarket.
Kingsgate Native was the last to win the Nunthorpe as a two year old.
Two horses have three wins – Tag End and Sharpo. Sole Power won the race four years apart from 2010 to 2014.
Australian mare Ortensia travelled overseas in 2012 after securing a domestic G1 in Perth. She won the Al Quoz sprint on World Cup night in Dubai and then headed further north.
After failing in the King's Stand and July Cup, she won the King George and Nunthorpe Stakes coming from near impossible positions.
In 2017 we saw a close race between Marsha and Lady Aurelia. Frankie Dettori thought he had won on the US filly but the other girl got the decision.
After running fourth in the two years prior, Battaash thrashed the field in 2019.
Lester Piggott has most jockey wins with seven while Ossie Bell has trained the winner five times.
The Nunthorpe Stakes was worth £400,000 in 2019.
