The Bay Meadows Breeders' Cup Sprint is a race for Thoroughbred horses held each year at Bay Meadows in San Mateo, California. The race is open to four-year-olds and up willing to make a six furlong dash on the dirt.

A Grade III event, it offers a trophy and a purse of $100,000 (includes $25,000 from the Breeders' Cup Fund).
