The Windsor Forest Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged four years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.
The race is one of several for older fillies which were introduced across Europe in 2004. These were designed as an incentive to keep more of their gender from being exported or prematurely retired to stud. The Windsor Forest Stakes is presently contested on the second day of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
