The September Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Kempton Park over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early September.

The event was established in 1979, and it was originally contested on turf over 1 mile, 3 furlongs and 30 yards. It was promoted from Listed to Group 3 status in 1982. The race was transferred to Epsom in 1997, and at the same time its distance was extended by about 200 yards. It returned to Kempton in 2000.

The September Stakes was run at Newmarket in 2005 – its regular home was closed for redevelopment. It was switched to Kempton's newly-opened all-weather track in 2006.
