The Gallorette Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run on Preakness Day at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland as a stakes feature of the undercard. It's set at a distance of one and one sixteenth miles on the turf.

A Grade III event for older fillies and mares, it offers a purse of $100,000 added. The race was first carded in its inaugural running in 1952. It became graded for the first time in 1973.[1]

The race is part of a series of stakes races named for famous Marylanders, in this case: Gallorette, one of the great racing fillies in American history. Named for Mrs. M. A. Moore's 1946 and 1947 Champion Handicap Female. Gallorete was famous for beating the males of her day in a number of races. Gallorette also won the 1945 Pimlico Oaks (the sister race to the Preakness Stakes) which was renamed later to the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes. Gallorette's own daughter, Mlle. Lorette, won this race in 1954.[2]

The Gallorete Handicap's stakes record is 1:40.32 held by Precious Kitten who won the race in 2007.

The race was run in two divisions in 1976.
