Gander Stakes

The Gander Stakes is an ungraded stakes race for New York bred Thoroughbred race horses, three-years-old and older, run at Belmont Park or at Aqueduct Racetrack. The Gander serves as a prep for the $100,000 Evan Shipman Handicap running at Belmont Park which is restricted to New York breds.

Inaugurated in 2005, and named for one of New York state’s favorite home-breds and racing millionaires, Gander, the race is set at one mile and 70 yards (1 and 1/16th miles) and offers a purse of $70,000 added.

This race is not listed on either the official Aqueduct or Belmont sites as running in 2009.
