Haggin Stakes

The Haggin Stakes was an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. Raced in mid-June, it was open to two-year-old horses and was contested on dirt over a distance of five and one half furlongs.

Inaugurated in 1940, there was no race in 1942 and 1943. After the 1982 running the event was put on hiatus until being revived in 1996. After fifty years in which it was raced, the Haggin Stakes was canceled in 2005 following a shortage of entrants. It has not been run since.

The race was run in two divisions in 1940, 1941, 1944, 1963, 1964, and 1971.

Notable past winners include the 1959 Kentucky Derby winner, Tomy Lee and the 2001 Champion Sprinter and winner of the Breeders' Cup Sprint, Squirtle Squirt
