The Prestige Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August.
The event was established in 1974, and in its first year it was called the "Globtik Stakes". It became the "Waterford Candelabra Stakes" in 1975. For a period it was classed at Listed level, and it was then promoted to its current status, Group 3, in 1981. The race was given its present title in 1989.
The leading horses from the Prestige Stakes often go on to compete in the following month's Fillies' Mile. The most recent to win both events was Nannina in 2005.
