Fort Harrod Stakes

The $100,000 Fort Harrod Stakes was an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually in mid April at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. A Listed Race open to horses age four and older, the 1⅝-mile (13 furlongs) event is contested on Polytrack synthetic dirt and is the longest stakes race run at Keeneland. It offered a purse of $100,000 and is one of the races leading up to the newly created Breeders' Cup Marathon.

In 2010, Keeneland did not renew the Fort Harrod Stakes.

Famous quotes containing the words stakes and/or fort:

    Law makes long spokes of the short stakes of men.
    William Empson (1906–1984)

    So here they are, the dog-faced soldiers, the regulars, the fifty-cents-a-day professionals riding the outposts of the nation, from Fort Reno to Fort Apache, from Sheridan to Stark. They were all the same. Men in dirty-shirt blue and only a cold page in the history books to mark their passing. But wherever they rode and whatever they fought for, that place became the United States.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
