The Forego Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. Open to horses three years old and up, it is a Grade I event run at a distance of seven furlongs on the dirt. The race can be a prep race for either the Breeders' Cup Sprint at 6 furlongs, or the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. In 2015, the purse was increased to $700,000.
Inaugurated in 1980 at the Belmont Park racetrack in Elmont, New York, where it remained through 1983, the Forego Handicap was initially run a distance of eight furlongs (one mile). From 1982 to 1999 it was raced at seven furlongs, then for 2000 through 2002 at six and a half furlongs before reverting to the seven furlong distance in 2003.
