Frizette Stakes

The Frizette Stakes is an American Grade 1 flat horse race for thoroughbred two-year-old fillies run at Belmont Park in New York over 1 mile on dirt in October each year. With its lucrative $400,000 purse and Gr 1 status, it is one of the most important preliminary races for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Inaugurated in 1945, the Frizette Stakes was named after Frizette, a filly that belonged to well-known Wall Street stock broker and leading racehorse breeder and owner, James R. Keene, who died in 1913. The Frizette Stakes is the filly equivalent of the Champagne Stakes for colts.

As part of the Breeders' Cup World Championship Challenge 'Win and You're In' program, the winner of the Frizette Stakes earns an automatic berth in that year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, a race famous for showcasing many of America's top fillies.

In its first-ever running, the Frizette Stakes was hosted in the now defunct Jamaica Racetrack in Queens, NYC. In 1960, 1961, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967 it was run at New York's Aqueduct Racetrack, and in all other years - except for 1949 to 1951 - it has been run at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

While over the years the Frizette Stakes has been run over various distances, over 1 mile three horses have shared the fastest time of 1:35.40: Queen Of The Stage in 1967, Golferette in 1978 and Meadow Star in 1990. Jockey Jerry D. Bailey has won the race a record four times: in 1992, 1997, 1998 and 2000.
