Kentucky Cup Distaff Stakes

The Kentucky Cup Distaff Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky. The Grade III event is run near the end of the fall meet and is open to fillies and mares aged three and older. Contested on Polytrack synthetic dirt at a distance of one and one-sixteenth miles, the race offered a purse of $100,000 in 2008.

Before 2008, the race was part of the Breeders' Cup Stakes Program and carried $75,000 in additional purse money from the Breeders' Cup Fund. Until 2007 the race was called the Turfway Breeders' Cup Stakes. With the support of WinStar Farm, this race which was suspended in 2010 due to economic challenges, returned in 2011.
