The Sport Page Handicap was an American thoroughbred horse race run annually at Aqueduct Race Track in Ozone Park, Queens, New York for three-year-olds and up. A Grade III event, it's set at a distance of 7 furlongs on the dirt and offers a purse of $150,000 added.

The Sport Page is named in honor of the horse who won the East View Stakes at Jamaica, New York in 1948.

Run at Jamaica prior to 1959; at Belmont Park in 1968, 1971, 1995, 2001 and 2003, this race has been run at Aqueduct in all other years.

Open to all ages prior to 1959, and run at the distance of six furlongs from 1953 to 1993, then at seven furlongs from 1994 to 2000.

Due to the troubled economy in 2008, the Sport Page was canceled by the NYRA as they adjusted races to meet the new Grade I standard purse of $300,000.
