The Yorkshire Oaks is a Group 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for fillies and mares at York conducted by the York Racecourse.
The Yorkshire Oaks is run over the mile and a half. It was first run in 1849 and was won by Ellen Middleton.
The race was originally run as a three year old fillies race but was to include mares in 1991. It became a Group 1 when the new grading occurred in 1971.
Fillies had won five runnings in a row before Enable won the title back.
The Yorkshire Oaks is run on the second day of the Ebor Festival at York.
Three horses have multiple wins – Only Royale, Islington and Enable. The first of Enable and Islington's was as a filly.
Horses like Alexandrova and Enable won the Oaks treble of Epsom, Irish and Yorkshire.
Enable won this as her final run before taking the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe in 2017. Sea Of Class missed by a head of taking the same double but ironically it was Enable that stopped her in Paris.
She won this race again in 2019 before tackling her third Arc but was run down late in that by Waldgeist.
The leading jockey is Fred Archer who won eight times over a 12 year period in the late 1800s.
Mathew Dawson and Sir Michael Stoute both have nine victories in the Oaks.
The Yorkshire Oaks was worth £425,000 in 2019.
Notable winners of the Yorkshire Oaks include Enable (2017/2019), Sea Of Class (2018), Tapesty (2014), The Fugue (2013), Blue Bunting (2011), Midday (2010), Dar Re Mi (2009), Alexandrova (2006), Islington (2002/2003), Petrushka (2000), Only Royale (1993/1994), Lupe (1970), Petite Etoile (1959), Winkipop (1910), Wheel Of Fortune (1879), Jannette (1878) and Virago (1854).
The 2019 Yorkshire Oaks was won by Enable from Magical and Lah Ti Dar.
