The All Along Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Colonial Downs in New Kent County, Virginia. Open to fillies and mares, age three and older, it is raced on turf at a distance of 1 18 miles. The race currently offers a purse of $200,000.

The race is named for the great French racing mare, All Along. Owned by Daniel Wildenstein, she raced in Europe and North America. All Along was the 1983 Champion Older Mare in France and 1983 American Horse of the Year who was inducted in the United States Racing Hall of Fame in 1990.

The All Along Stakes has been held at four different tracks all in the Mid-atlantic region of the United States, it was held at Laurel Park Racecourse from 1985-1996. The race was also held at Delaware Park in 1997 and Pimlico Race Course in 1990. The race was not held in 1986 or 1987. It was first graded in 1988 and it became a grade two race in 1990 and continued that way until 1997. Since 1998 the race has maintained its grade three status. The race was run at a distance of 1 316 miles in 1999 and 2000.

The 2010 race served as the perfect prep race to Shared Account who went on to win the 2010 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf a Grade 1 race held at Churchill Downs. In December 2010 Shared Account went on to be named Maryland Horse-of-the-Year.
