The Glorious Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late July or early August.
The event was established in 1979, and it was initially called the Alycidon Stakes. It was named after Alycidon, a successful racehorse whose victories included the Goodwood Cup in 1949. It was originally a conditions race for horses aged three or older, and it was given Listed status in 1985.
The title of the race was changed to the Alycidon Glorious Stakes in 1987, and it became known as the Glorious Stakes in 1989. The minimum age of participating horses was raised to four in 1993, and from this point it was run as a limited handicap. It reverted to being a conditions race in 2004, and it was promoted to Group 3 level in 2008.
The Glorious Stakes is currently held on the fourth day of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting.
