Half Moon Bay Stakes

The Half Moon Bay Stakes is an American ungraded stakes race for Thoroughbred horses held on the grass at Golden Gate Fields in Albany, California. For fillies and mares, three-year-olds and up, it's run at a distance of eight and a half furlongs on the turf and offers a purse of $50,000.

The Half Moon is named for a small bay on the coast below San Francisco famous for its pumpkins, as well as a recently discovered monster surf wave called the "Maverick".
