The Resorts Casino & Hotel Haskell Invitational (formerly known as the Haskell Invitational Handicap) is an American Grade I race for thoroughbred horses. In 1968, the Board of Directors of Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey honored its former President and Chairman Amory L. Haskell (1893-1966) with the Amory L. Haskell Handicap, a race for older horses. In 1981, the race was made an invitation-only stakes for 3-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles. It has been run under stakes conditions beginning with the 2006 running. In 2011, Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey became an official sponsor of the race, as part of a five-year partnership between the casino and the racetrack.

A major race for three year olds in between the U.S. Triple Crown series and the Breeders' Cup, it currently offers a purse of US$1,000,000 and awards one of the most prestigious trophies in U.S. thoroughbred racing in the Haskell Invitational Trophy.

Eight winners of the Haskell Invitational have gone on to win their divisional championship honors.
