Belmont Park in New York runs one of the most enviable stakes schedules in the world and one of their biggest races is the $700,000, Grade I Man o’War Stakes.
The event staged in May on the turf track, is for those aged four and over and is run over a distance of one mile and three furlongs, a fairly hefty task around this track for American-bred horses although those race conditions mean it can attract some of the better European middle-distance thoroughbreds.
Originally held over at Aqueduct in 1959 along with another six renewals since the Man o’War was briefly a handicap and is named for the amazing early 20th-century horse who won multiple top-level races including the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes.
More recently, this race has been won by such all-time greats as Secretariat, Theatrical, Daylami and Fantastic Light.
