Edgemere Handicap

The Edgemere Handicap was an American Thoroughbred horse race. Inaugurated in 1901 at the old Aqueduct Racetrack, it was open to horses of all ages and contested on dirt at a distance of one mile and seventy yards. [1] The following year the distance was changed to one mile and one furlong.

In 1908, the race was won by the two-year-old colt, Fashion Plate. There was no race between 1909 and 1916 and when it returned in 1917, conditions were modified to make it a contest for horses age three and older.

The Edgemere Handicap remained at Aqueduct Racetrack until 1956 when it was run at the Jamaica Racetrack at a mile and a sixteenth. The final edition was run on June 20, 1957 at Belmont Park.[2]

A new Edgemere Handicap was established at Aqueduct Racetrack in 1960 which in 1981 was renamed the Red Smith Handicap.
