Greenwood Cup Stakes

The Greenwood Cup Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually each summer at Philadelphia Park Racetrack in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Open to three-year-olds and up, the ungraded stakes event is set at a distance of 1½ miles on dirt. The race offers a purse of $200,000 plus $50,000 from the Breeders' Cup.

The race is named for Greenwood Racing, Inc. who purchased Philadelphia Park in December 1990.

Part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series, the winner of the 2008 and 2009 Greenwood Cup Stakes automatically qualifies for the Breeders' Cup Marathon. [1]
