Affectionately Handicap

The Affectionately Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run at New York’s Aqueduct Race Track in mid-January each year.

The one and one sixteenth mile ungraded stakes event is for fillies and mares, three-years-old and up, offering a purse of $75,000 added.

In its 36th running in 2011, the Affectionately is named for the great racing filly Affectionately. Number 81 in Blood-Horse magazine List of the Top 100 U.S. Racehorses of the 20th Century, Affectionately was called the “Queen of Aqueduct” during her racing days.

In 1976, the race was run at one mile. In 1977, 1983, and 1985, it was run in two divisions.
