The Fashion Stakes was an American Thoroughbred horse race for two-year-old fillies. Raced on dirt over a distance of five furlongs, it was run annually from 1889 through 2005. Inaugurated at Morris Park Racecourse in Westchester County, New York, when that facility closed in 1904 the race was run at Belmont Park and at Aqueduct Racetrack.[1][2]

The Fashion Stakes was often used as either the first or second start in a young filly's racing career. The event attracted some of the best bred fillies on the East Coast of the United States with several future Champions winning the race including Hall of Fame inductees Affectionately[3] and Ruffian.[4]

The Fashion Stakes was placed on hiatus after the 1984 edition and was not run again until being revived on June 3, 1999. [5]

Speed records On May 7, 1946, in her first start at Belmont Park First Flight equaled the track record time of 51 seconds for 4½ furlongs which had been set in the Fashion Stakes in 1928 by Orissa.[6]
