The Doubledogdare Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. A Grade III event since 2007, it is open to fillies and mares, age four and older. The race is contested on Polytrack synthetic dirt over a distance of a mile and a sixteenth (8.5 furlongs).

The race was named for Doubledogdare, the filly who gave Claiborne Farm their first major stakes win at Keeneland in the 1955 Alcibiades Stakes.[1] Doubledogdare went on to be voted that year's American Co-Champion Two-Year-Old Filly and returned to Keeland in 1956 to win the Spinster Stakes and would earn American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly honors.

Inaugurated in 1992 as a seven furlong event, Jeano won the inaugural running of the Doubledogdare Stakes by a nose. Jeano won again in 1994 to become the races only two-time winner.[2] The 1995 and 1996 races were canceled after it failed to draw enough entries. In 1997, the event was run on turf at a distance of five and a half furlongs. It was won by Singing Heart in a new Keeneland course record of 1:02.40.[3] A listed race in 1998, the distance was set ast its current mile and a sixteenth.
