Lillie Langtry Fillies' Stakes

Lillie Langtry Fillies' Stakes

The Lillie Langtry Fillies' Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in the United Kingdom for thoroughbred fillies and mares. It is run over a distance of 1 mile 6 furlongs (2,816 metres) at Goodwood Racecourse during the Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July or early August.

It was first run in 2003 as a Listed race, with the title registered as the Gladness Stakes. The following year the race was upgraded to Group 3 status and the name changed to the Lily Langtry Stakes, which was altered to the present spelling in 2005. It is named after Lillie Langtry, British actress and mistress of King Edward VII.
