The Lillie Langtry Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 1 mile and 6 furlongs (2,816 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late July or early August.
The event was established in 2003, and the inaugural running was titled the "Gladness Stakes". This was classed at Listed level, and the following year it was promoted to Group 3 status. Simultaneously the race was renamed the "Lily Langtry Stakes", and this was altered to the current spelling in 2005. It is named after Lillie Langtry, a British actress who was a mistress of King Edward VII.
The Lillie Langtry Stakes has been sponsored by Moët Hennessy since 2008, and it is now run as the "Moët Hennessy Fillies' Stakes". The race is presently held on day three of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting.
