The Great Voltigeur Stakes is a Group 2 race that has been running since 1950. It is a handicap race and there is a purse of £170,000 on offer. It takes place at the start of August and it is named after the winner of St Leger and Derby back in 1850.
It is still a major trial race for St Leger that takes place in September, with fourteen winners of the Great Voltigeur Stakes then going on to win St Leger. The Great Voltigeur Stakes is normally part of the Ebor Festival meeting at the York Racecourse.
Ground conditions play a major role in the outcome of races at this track. With firmer ground, it can be hard to make up ground as the race progresses, so a strong early position is usually vital if you want to do well.
