The Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes is a Grade I American thoroughbred horse race run annually since 1986 at Keeneland Race Course near Lexington, Kentucky. Open to horses three-year-old and up, it is raced on turf over a distance of one mile.

The race is held in early October and offers a purse of $600,000. Part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series, the winner of the 2008 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes automatically qualifies for the Breeders' Cup Mile. [1]

A Grade I since 2002, it was a Listed race in 1986 and 1987, a Grade III from 1988 through 1997 and a Grade II from 1998 through 2001.

The race was contested at 1 1/8 miles from 1986 through 1993 but was modified to its present one mile format in 1994.

Sponsored by Shadwell Farm's Kentucky division, the race is one of the final major prep races for the Breeders' Cup Mile.
