The Queen’s Vase is one of the older races in the calendar, first established in 1838. It was run as a Listed race between 1986 and 1990, and from 2014 to 2016, before being promoted to Group 2 in 2017 when its distance was reduced from two miles. During its history, the Queen’s Vase has also been open to older horses, while for much of the twentieth century it was known as the King’s Vase.  

The race is for staying three-year-olds who could develop into St Leger contenders later in the year. Recent winners Leading Light (2013) and Kew Gardens (2018) have gone on to success in the final classic, while Leading Light, along with Estimate (2012) and Stradivarius (2017), are among those to have returned to Royal Ascot a year later to win the Gold Cup.

Dual Gold Cup winner Le Moss was another top stayer to win the Queen’s Vase as a three-year-old. He was the best of Sir Henry’s Cecil’s record eight winners of the Queen’s Vase, which was run in the trainer’s memory in 2013 following his death in the week before Royal Ascot.

The leading trainer in the Queen’s Vase is Sir Henry Cecil, with eight winners. Cecil’s eight winners were Falkland (1972), General Ironside (1976), Le Moss (1978), Arden (1987), River God (1990), Jendali (1991), Stelvio (1995) and Endorsement (1999).

The leading jockeys in the Queen’s Vase since 1978 were Kevin Darley and Ryan Moore, with four winners. Kevin Darley’s four winners in the Queen’s Vase were And Beyond (2001), Shanty Star (2003), Melrose Avenue (2005) and Soapy Danger (2006). Ryan Moore’s four winners in the Queen’s Vase were Patkai (2008), Aloft (2012), Estimate (2015) and Kew Gardens (2018).
