Sam F. Davis Stakes

Race Name Grade Track
Sam F. Davis Stakes 3 Tampa Bay Downs Sam F. Davis Stakes

Sam F. Davis Stakes

The Sam F. Davis Stakes which was recently given its Gr 3 status, is held every year in February at Tampa Bay Downs racetrack in Tampa, Florida, USA, and is the main event on Festival Preview Day, held February 14, 2009. It's an American Thoroughbred horse race open to three-year olds, and is run on a dirt track with a distance of 1 1/16 miles, with an impressive winning of $200,000.

For many years the Sam F. Davis Stakes was seen as no more than a prep race for the track's namesake event, the Grade 3 Tampa Bay Derby. But in recent years, the Kentucky Derby has also been making use of The Davis as a prep race. And since The Davis has received Gr 3 status, the Tampa Bay Derby becomes a more feasible opportunity for horsemen trying to reach the Kentucky Derby this year.

The fastest time documented in the Sam F. Davis stands at 1:44.13, and was set in 2008 by Fierce Wind, ridden by Cornelio Velasquez and trained by Nick Zito. The largest winning margin still stands with San Gennaro set in 1999. He won by 6 3/4 lengths.
