The Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes was an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually in late September as part of Kentucky Cup Day at Turfway Park in the Cincinnati, Ohio suburb of Florence, Kentucky.

A 11/16 miles (8.5 furlongs) Grade III race for two-year-old colts, it was raced on natural dirt until 2005 when Turfway Park installed the new synthetic Polytrack surface. For 2009, the race was downgraded from a Grade III event to ungraded status and, along with its counterpart for filles, the Kentucky Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes, was then discontinued due to financial restraints. [1] The event offered a purse of $100,000 in 2008.

Inaugurated in 1994, the Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes replaced the In Memoriam Stakes.
