Classics races take place during the traditional flat racing season. The Classics are restricted to 3-year-old horses only.
It traditionally represents the most successful point of achievement for racehorses. The classic races are held against horses of the same age group. The victory in any classic marks a horse (the winner) as amongst the best of its generation. A horse is marked as truly exceptional if he attains two or even three series of victory. There are five British Classics:
- 2,000 Guineas Stakes
- 1,000 Guineas Stakes
- Epsom Oaks
- Epsom Derby
- Leger Stakes
The 1,000 Guineas and the 2,000 Guineas form part of the first leg and are the Newmarket Classics. The 1,000 Guineas is restricted to fillies. It is also known as the Fillies Classics. The 2,000 Guineas is open to both sexes and is known as the Colts Classic. They are both ridden at Newmarket in late April or early May.
The Derby and/or Oaks forms part of the second leg. They are both ridden at Epsom in early June for over 1 ½ miles. The Oaks is portrayed as the Fillies Classic and The Derby as Colts Classic.
The St. Leger is the final leg. It is held at Doncaster for over 1 mile 6 ½ furlongs and is open for both sexes.
In the Classics, the variety of distance and racecourses make them particularly challenging as a series to even the best horses. To compete across all these distances to make the Triple Crown, it is rare for a horse to possess both speed and stamina. It is rare for any attempt on the Triple Crown to be made in the modern era.
