Run at York racecourse, the Dante Stakes is a Group Two contest for 3 year-olds that is run over a trip of 1m2f.
Staged in the middle of May each season the middle-distance contest is seen as a key Epsom Derby Trial, with four of the last 16 Dante Stakes winners going onto land the fourth English Classic, with Golden Horn in 2015 being the most-recent horse to complete the Dante/Derby double – last year’s winner – Roaring Lion – went onto run third in the Epsom Derby.
Trainer John Gosden has won three of the last four runnings, while the Sir Michael Stoute camp have landed the race six times – anything they send to post, as well as leading Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien, who has also won the race four times, should be respected.
We take a look back at past winners of the Dante Stakes, plus give you the key trends ahead of the 2019 renewal – this year run on Thursday 16th May
