When:  January 1, 2021

Where:  Aqueduct Racetrack (South Ozone Park, NY)

Purse: $150,000

Race Distance: 1 mile

History:  First run in 1866 at the now defunct Jerome Park Racetrack, the Jerome is one of the oldest stakes races in the country, though its importance has diminished in recent years as it is now ungraded. The race is named for Leonard Jerome, the founder of Jerome Park in the Bronx and grandfather to Winston Churchill. It has produced a litany of notable winners, including the immortal Kelso, who won the race in 1960, the inaugural winner of the Kentucky Derby, Aristides, in 1875, as well as Hill Prince (1950), Tom Fool (1952), Bold Ruler (1957) and Carry Back (1961). For much of its history the race was run in the latter half of the year for 3-year-olds, so it hasn’t been a Derby prep for very long, however its placement on the calendar makes it a significant early stop on the New York portion of the Derby Trail.
