Sussex Stakes

Goodwood Racecourse
A Brief History Of Sussex Stakes
The Sussex Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race for three-year-old and above thoroughbreds run over a distance of 1 mile at Goodwood Racecourse during the Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July / early August.

It was first run in 1841 and was originally a race for two-year-olds. This early version of the Sussex Stakes was often poorly contested and bears little resemblance to the race today. The present format dates back to 1878 when it became a race restricted to three-year-olds. Four-year-olds became eligible to take part in 1960, and five-year-olds and upwards have also been allowed to run since 1975.
