Dante Stakes Trends 2023

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 19 Dante Stakes winners going onto land the fourth English Classic - Golden Horn, in 2015, being the most-recent horse to complete the Dante/Derby double.

Trainer John Gosden has won three of the last 8 runnings and Mark Johnston has been responsible for two of the last 6 winning horses. The Sir Michael Stoute camp are another yard to respect having landed the race 7 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 noted.

We take a look back at past winners of the Dante Stakes, plus give you the key trends ahead of the 2023 renewal – this year run on Thursday 13th May
