The Forward Gal Stakes is named for "Forward Gal," the American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly of 1970.

Forward Gal (foaled 1968 in Florida) was an American Thoroughbred Champion racehorse. Out of the mare, Forward Thrust, he was sired by Florida Derby winner Native Charger who also sired 1970 Belmont Stakes winner High Echelon. In 1970 Forward Gal's performances earned her American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors and although she did not repeat as champion at age three, she was one of the top fillies in her age group and under jockey Michael Hole won several important races including the 1971 Gazelle Handicap and Comely Stakes.
