The Gran Premio del Jockey Club is a Group 1 flat horse race in Italy open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Milan over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in October.

The event is named after the Jockey Club Italiano, a racing organisation based in Milan. It was established in 1921, and was initially contested over 1,800 metres.

The race was run over 2,000 metres in 1926 and 1927. It was extended to its current distance of 2,400 metres in 1928.
