The Miss Woodford Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run each year in August at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey open to three-year-old fillies. An ungraded stakes currently offering a purse of $200,000, it is a sprint race contested over a distance of six furlongs on the dirt.

Added to Monmouth Park's stakes schedule in 1952, the race is named for the great racing mare Miss Woodford of the late 19th century who was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1967. It was at Monmouth in the old Monmouth Oaks that Miss Woodford ran the race that made her the highest earning racehorse of her time. Fellow U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductees Tosmah (1964) and Ta Wee (1969) won this race.

The Miss Woodford stakes was run in two divisions in 1967 and again in 1986.
