David Hayes has had incredible success in the Debutant Stakes in recent times, winning the race five times over the last 10 years. In that stretch were horses such as Qafila and Wait For No One.

No jockey has quite been able to replicate that success, however, Stephen Baster has won twice in the last six years. He was on board Wait For No One in 2016 and Of The Brave in 2014.

In 2019, Tanker recorded a time of 0:58.13 to win the Debutant Stakes. The fastest 1000m time in the race over the last 20 years belongs to Villa Verde, who in 2012 clocked 0:57.23.
