The Geoffrey Freer Stakes is a Group 3 flat race at Newbury that has been running since 1949 and is open to horses that are at least three years old. There is a handicap system in place and horses will battle it out for a prize pool of £60,000. It was originally called the Oxfordshire Stakes when the race was originally started. It is now named after the founder of the race, who was also a former manager of the Newbury Racecourse.
It was grievously a Group 2 race but was downgraded to Group 3 in 2006. It is often a trial race for the St Leger Stakes that takes place the following month.
