The Spinaway Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. Open to two-year-old fillies, it is a Grade I event contested at a distance of seven furlongs (1,408 metres) on dirt. The Spinaway is a major prep to the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Since inception in 1881, the Spinaway has been run at different distances:

  • 5 furlongs : 1881-1900
  • 5.5 furlongs : 1901-1921
  • 6 furlongs : 1922-1993
  • 7 furlongs : 1994 to present

The Spinaway was hosted by Belmont Park in 1943, 1944 and 1945. It was not run from 1892 to 1900. The race was cancelled in 1911 and 1912 following a New York State legislated ban on parimutuel betting.
