The Chilukki Stakes is a race for thoroughbred horses. Prior to 2005, the race was known as the Churchill Downs Distaff Handicap. The Grade II Chilukki is open to fillies and mares, age three and up, and set at one mile on the dirt. It carries a purse of $150,000 and is run during the Fall Meet at Churchill Downs.

The Distaff was renamed for the Eclipse Award winning 2-year-old of the year, Chilukki, and the 2000 edition of the Churchill Downs Distaff Handicap.
