The Prestige Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to two-year-old 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 it was initially called the Globtik Stakes. It became known as the Waterford Candelabra Stakes in 1975. For a period it was classed at Listed level, and it was promoted to Group 3 status in 1981. It was given its present title in 1989.

The leading horses from the Prestige Stakes often go on to compete in the Fillies' Mile. The last to win both was Nannina in 2005.
