JUDDMONTE MIDDLE PARK STAKES
In 2015, Juddmonte Farms announced a new three-year sponsorship deal for the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes, one of the season’s premier two-year-old races for colts held over six furlongs at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile at the end of September. It has a history dating back to 1866.
Known Fact won the Middle Park for Prince Khalid in 1979, in doing so becoming his owner’s first Group 1 winner. OASIS DREAM won the race in record time in 2002, going on to win the July Cup and Nunthorpe Stakes the following year before becoming one of the leading sires in Europe upon retirement to stud. He sired Charming Thought to win the race in 2014.
