The Pan American Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at the end of March at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Raced on turf over a distance of one and a half miles, the event is open to horses four years of age and older.

A Grade III race since 2006, the Pan American Handicap was rated a GII event from 1990 through 2005 prior to which it had been a Grade I event since 1983.

Inaugurated in 1962 as a race competed over a distance of one and one eighth miles, it was changed to its present one and a half miles in 1965.

In 2009, due to heavy rain, this race was run on turf and at the shorter distance of 12 furlongs to 10.
