The Musidora Stakes has been run at York Racecourse since 1961 and there is a £100,000 prize pool on offer. Three-year-old fillies are able to enter this race that takes place each May. It is a trial race for the Oaks and has been a Group 3 race since 1971. Of the winners of the Musidora Stakes, six of them have gone on to win the Oaks. This race usually is part of the three-day festival meeting and runs before the Dante Stakes.
If you want to pick a horse that is going to do well at the Musidora Stakes, you will have to first look at the ground conditions as these will play a large factor. With firmer ground, horses that build up an early lead can often not be caught, while soft ground means that there is much more of an emphasis on stamina.
