York Racecourse
A Brief History Of Great Voltigeur Stakes
The Great Voltigeur Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race for three-year-old thoroughbred colts and geldings run over a distance of 1 mile 3 furlongs and 198 yards (2,394 metres) at York Racecourse during the Ebor Festival meeting in August.

It was first run in 1950 as the Voltigeur Stakes (the word 'Great' was added in 1957), and was named after Voltigeur, the Yorkshire trained winner of the 1850 Derby and St Leger. The Great Voltigeur Stakes is now a leading trial for the St Leger.
