Ascot Racecourse
A Brief History Of Summer Mile Stakes
The Summer Mile Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in the United Kingdom for four-year-old and above thoroughbreds. It is run over a distance of 1 mile at Ascot Racecourse in July.

Before 2006 the race was known as the Silver Trophy Stakes, and when it was temporarily transferred to the all-weather track at Lingfield Park Racecourse in 2005, it became the first British Pattern race to be run on a non-turf course. This was followed by the newly upgraded Winter Derby in March 2006. After a second year at Lingfield, the race returned to Ascot in 2007.
