National Stakes Betting

The Vincent O'Brien National Stakes is a Group 1 race run over seven furlongs and is open to two-year-old colts and fillies and is widely regarded as one of the elite juvenile races in the Flat calendar and is a sensational trial for the following season's Classics with a host of horses using this race as a springboard to the 2000 Guineas the next year.

It is a race run in September on the same card as the Irish Field St Leger and Moyglare Stud Stakes and has produced some sparkling winners, who have gone on to dominate the Group 1 division, and the aforementioned Vincent O'Brien saddled a mind-blowing 15 winners of the race between 1967 and 1992 with the likes of Sir Ivor (1967), Roberto (1971) and El Gran Senor (1983) just three of his star winners.

More recently, Aidan O'Brien has been the dominant training figure in this race and the new master of Ballydoyle has saddled some of the finest Flat horses in recent years, with the likes of George Washington (2005) and Gleneagles (2014) easing to victory here before going on to bigger and better things at the highest level.
