The Kentucky Stakes was a Thoroughbred horse race run between 1870 and 1938 at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. Raced on dirt, it was originally open to two-year-olds of either sex but after the event was placed on hiatus following the 1894 running it was revived in 1901 as a selling race for two-year-old fillies.

The inaugural running of the Kentucky Stakes was contested at 6 furlongs and was won by Harry Bassett, a three-time Champion and future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee. The early races for colts and fillies produced two more Hall of Fame winners, Parole in 1875 and Emperor of Norfolk in 1887.
