Pat O'Brien Stakes

The Pat O'Brien Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Del Mar Race Track in Del Mar, California. In 2009, this race became a Grade I event.

The race was named in honor of actor and Del Mar Racetrack co-founder, Pat O'Brien. The race, also known as the Pat O'Brien Breeders' Cup Handicap, is open to horses age three and up willing to race seven furlongs on Polytrack synthetic dirt, and carries a purse of $300,000. Pat O'Brien, a classic character movie actor who often appeared in a Jimmy Cagney starring vehicle, loved the races.
