The Michigan Mile And One-Eighth Handicap was an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually at the now defunct Detroit Race Course in Livonia, Michigan. A one time Grade II event raced on dirt, it was open to horses age three and older.

In 1975, trainer S Kaye Bell became the first female in the United States to condition the winner of a $100,000 stakes race.

Upsets include Stanislas defeating Tom Rolfe in 1966 and Nodouble in 1968 beating the reigning American Horse of the Year, Damascus.[1]
