The Prix Miesque is a Group 3 flat horse race in France which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Maisons-Laffitte over a distance of 1,400 metres (about 7 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late October or early November.

The event is named in honour of Miesque, a highly successful French-trained filly in the late 1980s. It was established in 2001, and it replaced a previous race, the Prix Saint-Roman. Its predecessor had been traditionally contested by juveniles of either gender, but for its last three runnings it was restricted to fillies only.
