The Sirenia Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain open to two-year-old horses. It is run at Kempton Park over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early September.

History[edit]

The event is named after Sirenia, a successful filly foaled in 1895. Her victories included Kempton's Duke of York Stakes and Great Jubilee Handicap, and she was subsequently a leading broodmare.

The Sirenia Stakes was originally contested on turf, and for a period it was classed at Listed level. It was promoted to Group 3 status in 2003, and was switched to a newly opened all-weather track in 2006.
