Lake George Stakes

The Lake George Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. It is open to three-year-old fillies and run at a distance of one and one-sixteenth miles on the turf. It is a Grade II race with a purse of $150,000 added.

The Lake George (named for the large lake north of Saratoga Springs, New York), was run in two divisions twice: once in 1996, and for the second time in 1998. The Lake George will be in its 15th running in 2010. On November 28, 2007, this Grade III stakes race was upgraded to a Grade II by the American Graded Stakes Committee.

Due to unseasonal rain, this race was held off the turf in 2009. A race removed from the turf because of weather loses its grade until it is examined by the Graded Stakes Committee.
