Arlington Park Racecourse

A Grade III handicap race run on the same day as the American Derby, the Modesty is a turf event over a mile and one furlong for fillies aged three-years-old and over at Arlington Park near Chicago.

The event carries a prize fund of $125,000 and joined the racing calendar in 1942 when it was staged at the old Washington Park.

Many changes have been made over the years, aside from the race’s venue. Once a race only for three-year-olds, from inauguration until 1951, it was run as the Modesty Stakes (non-handicap) and over the years has been staged on dirt over a mile, seven furlongs, six furlongs, and various other trips.

Indian Maid was a popular two-time winner of the Modesty in the 1960s, while in recent times, some other smart fillies having taken the prize, including Pure Clan, Ausus, and Dona Bruja.
