The Golden Jubilee Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

The event was established in 1868, and it was originally called the All-Aged Stakes. Its title was changed to the Cork and Orrery Stakes in 1926, in honour of the 9th Earl of Cork, who had served as the Master of the Buckhounds in the 19th century.

When the current system of race grading was introduced in 1971, the Cork and Orrery Stakes was classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1998. It was renamed in 2002 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, and simultaneously it was raised to the highest grade, Group 1.

The Golden Jubilee Stakes became part of a new international race series, the Global Sprint Challenge, in 2005. It has consequently featured a number of high-quality contenders from overseas. It is now the third leg of the series, preceded by the King's Stand Stakes and followed by the July Cup. It is presently run on the final day of the Royal Ascot meeting.
