Stardom Stakes

The Stardom Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

The event was established in 1978, and it was originally contested over 1 mile. It was initially titled the Westhampnett Stakes, and it became known as the Chromacopy Stakes in 1983. The present name was introduced when the race was given Listed status in 1987. Its distance was cut to 7 furlongs in 2009.
