Bed O Roses Handicap
The Bed O' Roses Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run at Belmont Park on Long Island in New York in the spring of the year. The Grade II event is for fillies and Mares three-year-olds and older, and is set at a distance of seven furlongs. In its 53rd running in 2009, the Bed O' Roses offers a purse of $150,000 added.
The race was named for Alfred G. Vanderbilt II's Hall of Fame inductee, Bed O' Roses, the American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly in 1949 and the American Champion Older Female Horse of 1952. This race was first run at Jamaica Racetrack and continued there until 1959, after which it moved to Aqueduct Racetrack. It was run in two divisions in 1964 and 1979 and its distance for its first three years was a mile and a sixteenth and then again in 1977 and 1978. It was contested at one mile from 1960 through 2005 with the exception of 1984 when it was set at a mile and seventy yards.
