The Heron Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Sandown Park over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late May.

The event was formerly held at Kempton Park. It was staged at Goodwood in 2005 and 2006, and transferred to Sandown Park in 2007.

The Heron Stakes is currently part of a fixture called the Brigadier Gerard Evening. The meeting also features the Brigadier Gerard Stakes and the Henry II Stakes.
