The Beresford Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at the Curragh over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September or October.
The event held Group 2 status at the beginning of the 1990s, but it was relegated to Group 3 level in 1992. Its former status was restored in 2003. The race is sponsored by Juddmonte Farms.
