The Victoria Park Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race run annually since 1988 at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. Raced in early to mid June over a distance of one and one-eighth miles, it is open to three-year-old horses. It was run on dirt until 2006 when the new synthetic Polytrack surface was installed.

Named for Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Victoria Park, the ungraded stakes race is considered the last prep for the Queen's Plate for any Canadian-bred participants.
