The Shepperton Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race run annually in early August at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. An Ontario Sire Stakes, it is a restricted race for horses age three and older. Raced on dirt over a distance of six and one-half furlongs on Polytrack, the Shepperton Stakes currently carries a purse of $125,000.

The race is named in honor of Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Shepperton. Inaugurated in 1976 as a 7 furlong race at Greenwood Raceway, the following year it was modified to its present 6.5 furlongs and shifted to the Fort Erie Racetrack where it remained until 1981 when it was moved to Woodbine Racetrack.

In 2005, Sophia's Prince's winning time broke a forty-four-year-old track record.
