The Bashford Manor Stakes is a six furlong sprint for two-year-old thoroughbred horses run each year during the Spring meet at Churchill Downs. It is a Grade III race on the dirt and offers a purse of $150,000, (plus $7,500 added from the Breeders' Cup program). It was named in honor of the Bashford Manor Stable owned by George J. Long and which produced several Kentucky Derby contestants plus three Derby winners: Azra (1892), Manuel (1899) and Sir Huon (1906).

In 2001, the race was moved from a Grade II to a Grade III event beginning in 2002.

The Bashford Manor Stakes has a long and storied history. In its 110th running in 2011, in 1923 it was won by Black Gold, the winner of the 1924 Kentucky Derby.
