The Royal Heroine Mile Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race once run annually during the second week of July at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California but now, due the closure of the Hollywood Park track, is run at Santa Anita Park.

Contested at a distance of one mile on turf, it is open to horses aged three and older. It was upgraded to a Grade II event in 2007.

From 2007 through 2008, the race was known as the CashCall Mile Invitational Stakes.

The Royal Heroine Stakes was named in honor of the great Champion filly, Royal Heroine, who won the inaugural running of the Breeders' Cup Mile in North American record time.
