The Red Bank Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually since 1974 at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. A Grade III event raced in late August/early September, it is open to horses age three and older and is contested at a distance of one mile (8 furlongs) on turf

Inaugurated in 1974 as a stakes race on dirt for two-year-old fillies, in 1975 it was made open to fillies and mares. In 1980, the race was converted to a handicap event on turf which was open to horses age three and older.

An earlier version of the Red Bank Stakes was run in 1885 as a six-furlong race for two-year-olds. It was won by A. J. Cassatt's, The Bard.[1]

Since inception the race has been contested at various distances:

  • 1 mile : 1980 to present
  • 1 mile and 70 yards on dirt : 1976
  • 1 116 miles on dirt : 1974-1975, 1977-1978
  • 1 116 miles on turf : 1979

Following heavy rains, the 2003 race was switched to the dirt track.

The Red Bank Handicap was run in two divisions in 1984 and 1985.
