The Spinster is one of North America’s most important weight-for-age stakes races held exclusively for fillies and mares. The 1963 and 1969 renewals were run as betless races. Juddmonte Farms, a world-renown Thoroughbred operation with a farm in Lexington, began sponsoring the Spinster in 2005.
The $500,000 Juddmonte Spinster (G1) will be run on Sunday, October 9 for fillies and mares 3yo and up going 1 1/8 miles on the main track. The nomination fee is $150; nominations close September 21.
The Juddmonte Spinster is Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" race for the Distaff division.
