The Citation Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. Raced in late November, it is open to horses age three-years-old and up. Contested on turf over a distance of 1 1/16 miles, the event currently offers a purse of $400,000. It was downgraded from a Grade I race to Grade II for 2010.

The Citation Handicap was canceled in 2005 because of problems with Hollywood Park's turf course. It was run in two divisions in 1983 and 1991.
