The Nassau Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain open to fillies and mares aged three years or older. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 1 mile, 1 furlong and 197 yards (1,991 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late July or early August.

History[edit]

The title of the event acknowledges the friendship between the 5th Duke of Richmond, a former owner of Goodwood Racecourse, and the House of Orange-Nassau. The race was established in 1840, and it was originally restricted to three-year-old fillies. During the early part of its history it was contested over a distance of 1 mile. It was extended to 1½ miles in 1900, and shortened to its present length in 1911.

The Nassau Stakes was opened to fillies and mares aged four or older in 1975. For a period it was classed at Group 2 level, and it was promoted to Group 1 status in 1999.

The race is currently held on the third day of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting.
