The Miesque Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. Raced in late November, the GIII event is open to two-year-old fillies. Contested at a distance of one mile (8 furlongs) on turf, it currently offers a purse of $100,000.

The race was named in honor of the great filly Miesque, a member of the French Horse Racing Hall of Fame and the United States Racing Hall of Fame.

The 2005 edition of the Miesque Stakes had to be canceled because of problems with Hollywood Park's turf course.
