The Mathis Brothers Mile Stakes (formerly known as the Sir Beaufort Stakes) is a Thoroughbred horse race run annually near the end of each December at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.

Originally named for Sir Beaufort, the 1993 Santa Anita Handicap winner, the race was renamed the Mathis Brothers Mile in 2014 under a marketing agreement between Santa Anita Park and Mathis Brothers Furniture.[1]

Due to poor racecourse conditions as a result of wet weather, the race was switched to the main dirt track in 2003, 2008 and 2010. In 2005, the race was run in two divisions.
