The Belmont Lexington is a Thoroughbred horse race for three-year-olds run over a distance of one and one eighth miles (nine furlongs) on the inner turf course at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

Named after one of America's greatest race horses as well as foundation sires, Lexington (The Blind Hero of Woodburn), the race is a listed stakes event and offers a purse of $1.

Inaugurated in 1961 at Aqueduct Racetrack as the Lexington Handicap, it would have been in its 44th running in 2008 but appears to be discontinued. It is not listed as running in 2009 on the official Belmont site.
