History

The race was first held at Ascot racecourse on 15 November 1937, to mark the official date of the King's Birthday, as a weight-for-age mile race for three-year-olds.[2] It was dropped from the race calendar in 1941 due to wartime economies. It was restored in 1943 and was run on the Saturday of the King's Birthday Meeting in November. In 2003 the race was run at Belmont Park Racecourse.
