Breeders' Stakes LogoThe Breeders’ Stakes is the third and final leg in the Canadian Triple Crown for three-year-old Thoroughbreds.  It generally takes place in August after the Queen’s Plate (June) and Prince of Wales Stakes (July) have been held.  Like the Belmont Stakes, which is the final leg of the US Triple Crown, the Breeders’ Stakes is 1.5 miles long (12 furlongs) so it is also the test of a champion.

The race is held on a turf track at the Woodbine Racetrack, in Toronto, Canada.  Like the Prince of Wales Stakes, the Breeders’ Stakes has a purse of $500,000.
