Dewhurst Stakes History Including Top Jockeys and Trainers

Successful breeder Thomas Gee was the man behind this prestigious event, with the Dewhurst of the title referring to his Stud operation in East Sussex. Designed to attract the highest calibre juveniles in training, the contest certainly got off to a flyer with each of the first four winners going on to land a Classic in their three year old campaigns.

This pattern of success has been almost unrelenting over the years as the race has continued to provide us with an early glimpse of greatness. Triple Crown winner, Ormonde (1885), the brilliant Nijinsky (1969) and Mill Reef (1970), record breaking Rock Of Gibraltar (2001) and the greatest racehorse of all time, Frankel (2010) are just a few of the names to be produced by this races conveyor belt of excellence.

Winners here have gone on to win just about every other big race going, from the 2000 Guineas to the Queen Anne Stakes and from the Sussex Stakes to the Epsom Derby.

Tasty Trainers

Irish trainer Jim Bolger achieved a remarkable run of success in this race in the early 2000s, winning the contest five times between the years of 2006 and 2012. That still wasn’t enough to get him to the top of the trainer’s leader board though. John Porter in the late 19th Century, and Frank Butters in the first half of the 20th, each recorded an impressive eight successes in the contest.

Jubilant Jockeys

It’s hard to keep track of the number of races in which Lester Piggott heads the all-time list and we have another example here. Probably the greatest flat jockey of all time, Lester came home in front here 10 times between the years of 1956 and 1982.
