The Vintage Stakes is a Group 2 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 late July or early August.
The event was established in 1975, and it was originally classed at Listed level. During the early part of its history it was sponsored by Lanson, and it was known as the "Lanson Champagne Vintage Stakes". The race was given Group 3 status in 1986, and it was promoted to Group 2 level in 2003. Since then it has been backed by Veuve Clicquot.
Several winners of the Vintage Stakes have gone on to achieve victory in one of the following year's Classics. Three of these — Troy, Dr Devious and Sir Percy — won the Derby. The race is presently contested on day two of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting.
