How long can a definition query be?

I'm just wondering if there is any limit on the length of a definition query statement - by number of characters, maybe, or otherwise?

 

I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.

 

I just wrote a definition query statement like this...

 

OBJECTID IN ('VALUE1', 'VALUE2', 'VALUE3', etc...)

 

...but with many more values in the list.  In my example I had 300 values in the list.  So, for future reference, at what point would the list be too long for ArcMap to handle?
