Stewards' Cup (Great Britain)

The Stewards' Cup is a flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Goodwood over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late July or early August.

The event was established in 1840, but its name dates back to 1834. For several years the senior steward at the Goodwood meeting presented a cup to the winner of any race of his choosing. The choice varied each year, and the cup was awarded for events which ranged from 6 furlongs to 1½ miles. The present race, a sprint handicap, was conceived by Lord George Bentinck in late 1839. The inaugural running took place the following summer, and it was won by Epirus, a six-year-old trained by John Scott.

The Stewards' Cup used to be held on the opening day of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting, but it was moved to the final day, Saturday, in 1993. Its current sponsor, Blue Square, began supporting the race in 2007.
