The Marshua Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually in February at Laurel Park Racecourse in Laurel, Maryland. The Marshua Stakes, is open to fillies that are three-years-old in age and up willing to race six furlongs on the dirt. It was the 24th running of the stakes race in 2010.

An ungraded stakes race, it offers a purse of $75,000. The race was named in honor of the great race mare Marshua in 1987. Marshua was foaled in 1962 and was an American Thoroughbred racehorse sired by her famous father Nashua out of Emardee, by Heliopolis. Marshua was ranked second in her class of two year-olds. She made 16 starts in 1964 and was in the money 15 times an incredible 94% of the time. The highlight of that season was her victory in the prestigious Selima Stakes at Laurel Park Racecorse in Maryland. Having led all the way around the 1-1/16 mile event, she battled Queen Empress through the stretch to win by a fading neck. Queen Empress was later named champion two year-old filly. In addition to the Selima, Marshua won the Schuylerville Stakes, the Gardenia Stakes and the Marguerite Stakes in her freshman year.

Marshua was bred and owned by Mrs. W. Gilroy. At age three she placed second in the Acorn Stakes and won the filly classic Coaching Club American Oaks. She retired with a record of nine wins, six seconds and four thirds in 21 starts with career earnings of $317,599.[1]
