The Supreme Stakes is a Group 3 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 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August or early September.

The event was established in 1981, and it was originally called the Harroways Stakes. It was initially classed at Listed level. The race was given its current title in 1987, and at the same time it was promoted to Group 3 status.

The Supreme Stakes was formerly held in late September or early October. It was brought forward to its present slot in 2007.
