North Island Challenge Stakes was a major thoroughbred horse race in New Zealand. It was run at Trentham Racecourse, Wellington, New Zealand over a sprint distance of 7 furlongs.

The race is notable as an historical annual horserace, as it was won by the who's-who of New Zealand recehorses of the time, including Gloaming and Desert Gold, considered along with Phar Lap as the country's three greats.[1] New Zealand hall of famers Gloaming and Kindergarten each won the race three times.[2]
