The Zetland Stakes is a Listed flat horse race in Great Britain open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 1 mile and 2 furlongs (2,012 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in October.

The event was classed at Listed level until it became an ungraded conditions race in 2007. It returned to Listed level in 2015.[1] It was previously run at Newmarket's last racing fixture of the year but was moved in 2015 to become part of the course's Future Champions Festival.
