Nassau Stakes

Goodwood Racecourse
A Brief History Of Nassau Stakes
The Nassau Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race for three-year-old and above thoroughbred fillies and mares run over a distance of 1 mile 1 furlong and 192 yards (1,986 metres) at Goodwood Racecourse during the Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July / early August.

It was first run in 1840 and was restricted to three-year-old fillies only until 1975. The name of the race originated from the friendship between Charles Lennox, 5th Duke of Richmond and Lennox and the House of Orange-Nassau. It gained Group 1 status in 1999.
