Coral Eclipse Overview
The Eclipse Stakes takes its name from the legendary racehorse Eclipse, who remained undefeated over all of the 18 races he ran. The race was first run in 1886 for the princely sum of £10,000 – which at the time was a bigger prize fund than for any other race in Britain and more than double the prize on offer for the Epsom Derby.
This is an exciting part of the season, as it’s the first time the 3yo Classic generation take on the older horses. The race is run over a mile and quarter and has been won by some of the best flat horses, including Brigadier Gerard, Sadlers Wells and Sea The Stars.
The entries for this year’s race include current favourite Cliffs Of Moher, trained by Aidan O’Brien, closely followed in the betting by Barney Roy, winner of the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.
