The Jenny Wiley Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually during the second week of April at Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, Kentucky. The Grade IIT turf event is for fillies and Mares, age four and older and is contested at a distance of one and one-sixteenth miles.

The Jenny Wiley Stakes is named for Jenny Wiley, a pregnant pioneer woman captured in Kentucky by Native Americans in 1789 and who escaped after almost a year in captivity.

Inaugurated in 1989 as a Listed race, in 1995 the Jenny Wiley Stakes was elevated to Grade III status and to a Grade II event in 2006.
