*HB family called the Prizefighter Family (no Family Table number)

One of the oldest recorded races in Ireland

1813 - 1951: Called Madrid Stakes
1952 - 1955: Called Madrid Plate (not a handicap)
1956 - 1976: Called Madrid Free Handicap
1977 - 1980: Called Irish Free Handicap
1980 - Present: Called Madrid Handicap

Distances: 1813 - 1868: 1 mile-130 yards
1869 - 1951: 1 mile
1952 - 1955: 6 furlongs
1956 - Present: 7 furlongs

A "Class II" running of this event was frequently held in the nineteenth century, always on the same day, and often with the same runners and over the same distance. Sometimes the awarded purse was less than the "Class I" race. Harkaway, Birdcatcher, and The Baron were famous Irish horses that contested both races, and only won the Class II running.
