Height of Fashion Stakes

The Height of Fashion Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in the United Kingdom for three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run over a distance of 1 mile 1 furlong and 192 yards (1,986 m) at Goodwood Racecourse in May.

The race was given its present name in 2007 to honour Height of Fashion, the dam of the top class racehorses Nashwan, Unfuwain and Nayef. Prior to this it had been known as the Lupe Stakes, named after Lupe, winner of the Epsom Oaks in 1970. As the Lupe Stakes it was a trial race for the Epsom Oaks, with Love Divine winning both races in 2000. Height of Fashion herself won the Lupe Stakes in 1982.
