New York Stakes
The New York Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually during the third week of June at Belmont Park in Elmont, Long Island, New York. A Grade II event open to fillies and mares age three and older, it is contested on turf at a distance of one and one-quarter miles (10 furlongs).
Prior to 1962 the race was open to horses of either sex. For 1972 only, it was restricted to three-year-old fillies. Inaugurated in 1940 as the New York Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack, it was moved to Belmont Park in 1961 but returned to Aqueduct in 1963 where it remained until 1975 when it was shifted permanently to Belmont Park. Since its inception, it has been contested at various distances on both dirt and turf.
