Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap
The Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually near the end of July at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. A Grade I event open to horses age three and older, it is a six furlong sprint raced on dirt.
Run as the A Phenomenon Handicap prior to 2000, it was renamed to honor Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt II who died in 1999. Vanderbilt was a very prominent Thoroughbred owner who also served as Chairman of the Board of the New York Racing Association from 1971 to 1975.
