The San Rafael Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run at Santa Anita Park, located in Arcadia, California. The race is a Grade III event with a purse of $150,000 and is open to three-year-olds willing to race one mile (8 furlongs) on the facility's Cushion Track synthetic dirt race track.

Prior to 2005, the race was held in early March. Beginning in 2005, the race was moved to mid-January to offer a better fit to trainers to race in the Sham Stakes, the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (formerly known as the Santa Catalina Stakes) and the San Felipe Stakes. It is now the year's first official prep race for the U.S. Triple Crown series.

On November 28, 2007, this Grade II stakes race was downgraded to a Grade III by the American Graded Stakes Committee.
