Sapling Stakes

The Sapling Stakes is an American Grade III Thoroughbred horse race run annually in early September at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. Open to 2-year-olds, it is raced on dirt over a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $150,000.

First run in 1883, the New Jersey Legislature passed a law in 1894 that banned parimutuel betting in the state and the track closed its doors. In 1946, the state legislature passed a bill providing for state regulation of horse racing and the Sapling Stakes was revived. In 1952, the race was run in two divisions.
