The Goodwood Stakes is an American thoroughbred horse race run annually since 1982 during the Oak Tree Racing Association at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.
Formerly known as the Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap, it is open to horses, age three and up, willing to race 1�...> miles (9 furlongs) on the dirt. Previously, it had been raced at 11/16 miles from 1982 through 1984 and again in 1986. In 2007 the race was upgraded by the American Graded Stakes Committee to a Grade I event from its previous Grade II status. The race is named for Oak Tree Racing Association's sister operation at Goodwood Racecourse near Chichester, England. The race reverted to the Goodwood Stakes in 2008, as all Breeders' Cup Stakes Funded races lost the Breeders' Cup name.
