The Autumn Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in October.

For a period the event was classed at Listed level. It was promoted to its present status, Group 3, in 2003. It is now held during Ascot's last flat racing fixture of the year.

The leading horses from the Autumn Stakes sometimes go on to compete in the Racing Post Trophy, which is usually two weeks later.
