Grand Prix Stakes Winners

The Grand Prix Stakes, initially held in 1971 as a Principal race over 12 furlongs, was originally won by Mode. Two years later, converting to the metric system, the race became 2,400 metres followed by a 200 metre decrease in 1975. The event found a comfortable 2,100 metre distance in 2004, after being held at 2,144 metres in 2002 and 2,140 metres in 2003. In 2009, the event resumed its current 2,200m. The Grand Prix Stakes changed from a Principal to a Group 2 listed race in 1979, but since 2006 has dropped down to Group 3 status.
