The Hollywood Turf Cup is an American stakes race for thoroughbred horses formerly run at Hollywood Park Racetrack until that track's closing. It now takes place at Del Mar Racetrack during its Fall Meet. A Grade II event, it is open to horses, age three and up, and run at a distance of one and one-half miles. The Hollywood Turf Cup currently offers a purse of $250,000.
Horses who previously ran in the Breeders' Cup Turf often run in the Turf Cup since it is the last major turf race of the year. As with all Hollywood Park turf stakes it was on hiatus in 2005.
The race was run in two heats in 1982. It was raced at 1 3⁄8 miles (11 furlongs) in 1982 and 1983.
This race has lost its Grade I status and is now a Grade II.
