The Shuvee Handicap is an American race Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Run in mid May, it is open to fillies and mares, age three and up, who are willing to race one mile on the dirt. A Grade II event, it offers a purse of $150,000. The Shuvee is one of the first prep races for the Breeders' Cup Distaff.

Inaugurated in 1976 as a one mile race, it was run at a mile-and-a-sixteenth from 1977 to 1992, and again in 1994. In 1995 the distance reverted to its original one mile.

The race was named after the great U.S. Racing Hall of Fame filly, Shuvee, winner of the 1969 Fillies Triple Crown.
