La Habra Stakes

The La Habra Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race for three-year-old fillies run at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California early in the year. A Grade III stakes race, originally at about 6.5 furlongs on the Hillside Turf Course, it's raced on the turf oval at 5.5 furlongs since 2020 and offers a purse of $100,000.

This race is named for the city of La Habra, California, some distance south of the Santa Anita Racetrack. Once a land grant named by its owner, Rancho Cañada de La Habra, it's one of southern California's earliest settlements.

The race was not run in 2010.

Super Freaky holds the stakes record at 1:12.66. In 2009, Pasar Silbano ran it in 1:12.67.
