Old Hat Stakes

The Old Hat Stakes, upgraded by the American Graded Stakes Committee on November 27th, 2007, from a Grade III event to a Grade II, is run very early each year at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Open to three-year-old fillies, it is set at a distance of six furlongs and offers a purse of $100,000.

The Old Hat is an important prep race for the Kentucky Oaks.

The race was named after Old Hat, an exceptional racing mare who often vied with the great Affectionately. Old Hat raced for six years and won the American Champion Older Female Horse award in 1964 and 1965. Old Hat started 80 times, winning 35, placing in 18, and showing in 9.

(This race was upgraded to a Grade III in 2005.)
