The Jennings Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Laurel Park Racecourse in Laurel, Maryland. Raced in late November or early December each year, it is open to horses age three and older that are registered Maryland Breds and is contested on dirt over a distance of 1⅛ miles (9 furlongs).

Prior to 1993 the race alternated locations between Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. The Race has been run at three different distances; 1-1/8 miles, 1-1/16 miles and 6 furlongs.[1]

The race was named in honor of William Jennings, Sr. Jennings was one of Maryland's all-time great horseman. His farm, Glengar Farm was located only six miles from "Old Hilltop" (Pimlico Race Course) on Smith Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland. Jennings achieved national prominence in the late 1800's, among his good horses was, 1887 Preakness Stakes winner Dunboyne, whom he bred, owned and trained. His heritage continued through his grandson, Hall of Fame trainer Henry S. Clark, regarded by many as the dean of Maryland horse trainers.[2]
