The Golden Daffodil Stakes was a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which was open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older. It was run at Chepstow, Wales, over a distance of 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 36 yards (2,045 metres), and it was scheduled to take place each year in July.
The event was established in 1994, and it was initially classed at Listed level. Its title refers to the Daffodil, a national emblem of Wales.
The Golden Daffodil Stakes was promoted to Group 3 status in 2003, and for a short period it was the only Group race in Wales. It was last run in 2005.
