The La Prevoyante Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race run annually in mid September at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. An Ontario Sire Stakes, it is a restricted race for three-year-old fillies. It is contested over a distance of one mile (8 furlongs) on Turf and currently carries a purse of $125,000.

Inaugurated in 1975, it was raced at a distance of seven furlongs until 1979 when it was modified to its present one mile. For 1977 only, the race was run on dirt and in 1979 it was run in two divisions.

The race was named to honor the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame and U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, La Prevoyante. Owned by Quebec businessman and prominent racing stable owner, Jean-Louis Levesque's, La Prevoyante went undefeated in all twelve of her races in 1972 and was voted U.S. Champion 2-Yr-Old Filly and Canadian Horse of the Year. In 1974, she collapsed and died of a ruptured lung following the Miss Florida Handicap at Calder Race Course who also honors her with the La Prevoyante Handicap.
