2022 Windsor Castle Stakes Preview

The Windsor Castle Stakes is run as part of the Royal Ascot festival which takes place in June, the race is open to only two-year-old runners and is run over a straight five furlongs. All runners run off a weight of 9-3 with the exception of fillies who receive a five-pound allowance meaning they run off 8-12.

We also have a dedicated Royal Ascot Betting Picks page that will cover this race as well as all of the other races on the day of the race, see which runners the OLBG racing tipsters are predicting to win this race and the others on the cards.

The runner that holds the record over the past 20 renewals for the slowest time in the race was set in the 2019 renewal when Southern Hills from A P O'Brien who under the guidance of Ryan Moore, won in a time of 1:03.05, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, Titus Alone, trained by Bryan Smart and ridden by Kevin Darley set the quickest time of 57.40 in the 2005 renewal.

  • 2005 - Titus Alone (57.40)
  • 2014 - Hootenanny (59.05)
  • 2017 - Sound And Silence (59.20)
