The Sea o'Erin Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually in early September at Arlington Park racetrack in Arlington Heights, Illinois. A Grade III event open to horses age three and older, it is contested on turf over a distance of one mile (8 furlongs).

Inaugurated in 1980 as the Sea o'Erin Handicap, the race has been run at various distances:

  • 1 18 miles : 1980, 1987
  • 1 116 miles : 1981-1985

Due to heavy rains, the 1996 race was switched from the turf course to the main dirt track.

There was no race run in 1986, 1988, 1995, and 1997-2000.
