The Lone Star Park Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually during the last week of May at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. A Grade III event open to horses age three and older, it is contested on dirt over a distance of 11/16 miles (8.5 furlongs).

The Lone Star Park Handicap was first run as a Grade III event in 2000. In 2001, Dixie Dot Com became the only horse to win in the same year the Lone Star Park Handicap and the Texas Mile Stakes, known as "The Texas Two Step."

In 2010, Rosie Napravnik became the first female rider to win a graded stakes race in Lone Star Park history.
