History

The event is named in honour of Evelyn Boscawen, 6th Viscount Falmouth, who was a leading racehorse owner and breeder in the 19th century. It was established in 1911, and it was originally restricted to three-year-old fillies.

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the Falmouth Stakes was initially classed at Group 3 level. It was opened to older fillies and mares in 1974. It became known as the Child Stakes in 1975, when Child's Bank began a period of sponsorship. It was promoted to Group 2 level in 1987, and it reverted to its original name in 1992. It was raised to Group 1 status in 2004.

The Falmouth Stakes is currently held on the second day of Newmarket's three-day July Festival meeting.
