The Swale Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually in early February at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. A Grade II sprint race for three-year-olds, it is run on dirt over a distance of 6.5 furlongs. It currently offers a purse of $150,000.

The Swale Stakes was inaugurated in 1985 as a seven furlong sprint but in 2007 was modified to 6.5 furlongs.

The race was named in honor of Claiborne Farm's brilliant colt Swale who won the 1984 Florida Derby, Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes but who died suddenly of a heart attack eight days after his Belmont victory.
