The Natalma Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. Run in early September, the G III race is run at a distance of one mile (8 furlongs) on turf and is open to two-year-old fillies. Currently, it offers a purse of $150,000.
The race is named in honor of Natalma, the Virginia-bred Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame mare who was the dam of Northern Dancer, one of the most influential sires in Thoroughbred history. Inaugurated in 1965, the Natalma Stakes was raced on dirt at a distance of 11/16 miles until 1968 when it was switched to the rack's turf course. In 1980 the distance was modified to its present one mile. The race was run in two divisions in 1979, 1983-1986, 1988. 1990-1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002.
