The Hollywood Starlet Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race for two-year-old fillies run each December at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. Currently offering a purse of $400,000, the Grade I event, it was raced on dirt until 2006 when the new synthetic Cushion Track was installed. It is run over a distance of 1 1/16 miles (8.5 furlongs). From 1985 though 1990 it was raced at a distance of one mile.
The Hollywood Starlet Stakes is the final major race of the year for young fillies and is frequented by horses coming out of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.
In 2003, Hollywood Story became the first maiden to win the Starlet in the history of the event.
