The Solario Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Sandown Park over a distance of 7 furlongs and 16 yards (1,423 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in August.

The event is named after Solario, a successful racehorse in the 1920s and subsequently a leading sire. It was established in 1947, and the inaugural running was won by Panair. For a period the Solario Stakes was classed at Listed level, and it was then promoted to its present status, Group 3, in 1986.
