The Moyglare Stud Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Ireland which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at the Curragh over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August or early September.

The event is named after its long-term sponsor, Moyglare Stud. It was formerly contested over 6 furlongs, and for a period it was classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1979, and to the highest level, Group 1, in 1983. Its distance was extended to 7 furlongs in 1992.

The Moyglare Stud Stakes became part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series in 2009. The winner of the race now earns an automatic invitation to compete in that year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. [1]
