Bay Shore Stakes

Race Name Grade Track
Bay Shore Stakes 3 Aqueduct Racetrack Bay Shore Stakes

Bay Shore Stakes

The Bay Shore Stakes is a Gr 3 American horserace contested over seven furlongs on dirt by three-year-old male and female thoroughbreds. Run annually in early April at Aqueduct Racetrack in Ozone Park, Queens, New York. It offers a purse of $200,000 and is widely accepted as a minor prep race for the Kentucky Derby.

The race was inaugurated in 1960 as the Bay Shore Handicap, named after the resort town of Bay Shore located in the town of Islip in the County of Suffolk, New York. (Interestingly, another race called the Bay Shore Stakes was contested at Aqueduct Racetrack for three-year-olds over seven furlongs until 1955).

Since its inception almost 50 years ago, the Bay Shore Stakes has been run over many distances. For instance, from 1960 until 1963 it was contested over 8 furlongs, in 1977, 1978, 1984 and 1994 over 6 furlongs, and from 1964 until 1976, 1979 until 1983, 1985 until 1992 and 1995 until now, over 7 furlongs.

The fastest time that the Bay Shore Stakes has ever been won in is 1:20.54 set in 1998 by Limit Out ridden by Jean-Luc Samyn, while John Velazquez has a record four wins to his name - in 1994 aboard Prank Call, 1996 aboard Jamies First Punch, 2003 aboard Halo Homewrecker and 2004 aboard Forest Danger.

Racehorse trainers Stanley R. Shapoff and D. Wayne Lukas have each won the Bay Shore Stakes a record three times - in 1974, 1988 and 1991; and 1985, 1989 and 1990 respectively.
