The Sham Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. The Sham Stakes is open to three-year-olds and is held at one mile on the dirt. An official prep race for the Kentucky Derby, the Grade III event is run in early January and offers a purse of $100,000.
Inaugurated in 2001, the Sham Stakes is named for the racehorse Sham, winner of the 1973 Santa Anita Derby and remembered for his battles with the great Secretariat in that year's U.S. Triple Crown Races.
