The Tancred Stakes is an open weight-for-age race that takes place at Rosehill Racecourse.

Maidenhead won the inaugural Tancred Stakes in 1963 when the race was held over 1½ miles (approximately 2400m) and was named the HE Tancred Cup.

The following year the race distance was shortened to 1¼ miles (approximately 2000m) and then reverted back to its original distance the year after that.

In 1973 the race took on its current distance of 2400m and has remained that way since.

As well as enduring a few distance changes, the race has had many name changes in its short but illustrious history.

In 1977 its name was changed from the HE Tancred Cup to the HE Tancred Stakes and in 1981 it was shortened to the Tancred Stakes.

The races association with BMW started in 1990 and was named The BMW International Stakes and the following year adjusted the name to The BMW Stakes.

In 1996 the race became the Mercedes Classic and from 2002-2017, the race was known as The BMW. As of 2018, the race is known as the Tancred Stakes.
