The Monmouth Stakes is an American thoroughbred horse race on turf at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. It took place for the first time on September 13, 2008. Open to horses age three and older, it is contested at a distance of 1⅛ miles (9 furlongs).

Monmouth Park created the Monmouth Stakes when IEAH Stables said they wanted their Dual Classic winner, Big Brown, to compete in a turf race in the middle of September. Although Belmont Park was willing to create a race, that never materialized.[citation needed] Philadelphia Park used the Presidents Cup to entice Big Brown to race there.
