Cocked Hat Stakes
The Cocked Hat Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and geldings. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 1 mile and 3 furlongs (2,213 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.
The event was established in 1970, and it was originally called the Predominate Stakes. This was in honour of Predominate, a three-time winner of the Goodwood Stakes (1958–60) and the winner of the Goodwood Cup in 1961. The distance of the Predominate Stakes was formerly set at 1 mile and 4 furlongs. This was cut to 1 mile, 1 furlong and 192 yards in 1988, and then extended to its present length, 1 mile and 3 furlongs, in 2001. Its title was changed to the "Cocked Hat Stakes" in 2007.
