The Black Helen Handicap was an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Hialeah Park Race Track in Hialeah, Florida, from 1941 through 2001. Open to fillies and mares age three and older, the Grade II event was raced on turf at a distance of a mile and an eighth (9 furlongs).[1]

The race was named for U.S. Racing Hall of Fame mare Black Helen. The 2000 edition of the Black Helen Handicap was run at Gulfstream Park. It returned for the final edition to Hialeah Park in 2001, which was won by Perfect Sting.[2]
