The Sirenia Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Kempton Park over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early September.

The event is named after Sirenia, a daughter of Gallinule foaled in 1895. She won several races at Kempton, including the Duke of York Stakes and the Great Jubilee Handicap. She was subsequently a leading broodmare.

The Sirenia Stakes was originally contested on turf, and for a period it was classed at Listed level. It was promoted to Group 3 status in 2003, and it was switched to Kempton's newly-opened all-weather course in 2006.
