Count Fleet Stakes

The Count Fleet Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run at Aqueduct Racetrack, located in Jamaica, New York, at the beginning of January each year. It's the first stakes race of the year run in New York for three-year-olds.

Named after the great Count Fleet, the 1943 Triple Crown winner, the race is open to three year olds willing to race one mile and seventy yards on the inner dirt track.

Offering a purse of $70,000 added, the race is a prep to the Whirlaway Stakes, the Gotham Stakes, the Bay Shore Stakes and the Wood Memorial Stakes.
