Dante Festival – York Racecourse Corporate Hospitality Packages
See one of the biggest horse racing events of the season with our official York Dante Festival corporate hospitality packages. The Dante Stakes was established in 1958 and named after the Yorkshire-trained winner of the 1945 Epsom Derby, Dante.
Since the first running the race has grown into one of the major Derby trials of the season with trainers keen to test the credentials of their best colts at York Racecourse. Ten horses have completed the Dante Stakes and Epsom Derby double with first coming in 1960 with St Paddy.
In 2007 the highly-rated Authorized took the Dante and Derby, before returning to York Racecourse to claim the Juddmonte International at the York Ebor Festival.
The last horse to take the Dante Stakes and Epsom Derby was Golden Horn who completed the double in 2015. The John Gosden trained colt took the Dante in breath-taking fashion before following up in similar style at Epsom.
After his victories at York Racecourse and Epsom, Golden Horn became the first horse in history to win The Dante, The Derby and Coral Eclipse in the same season – cementing his status as one of the finest colt of his generation.
