The Maryland Racing Media Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run in February of each year at Laurel Park Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland. It is set at a distance of one and one eighth miles (nine furlongs) on the dirt for fillies and mares and three years old and up.

The race was named in honor of the Maryland Racing Media Association which was organized under the name of the Maryland Racing Writers' Association in 1937. It held its first meeting at Havre de Grave race track in that year. Originally the association was restricted to members of the print media; the membership now includes members from television, radio, publicity and photojournalism as well. The stakes record is held by Irving's Baby who won the race at 1-1/8 miles in 2002 in 1:50.20.[1]
