The Private Terms Stakes is a race for Thoroughbred horses held in late March at Laurel Park in Maryland. The ungraded stakes race is open to three-year-olds willing to race one mile on the dirt and offers a purse of $85,000. This race is a minor race on the road to the Triple Crown each spring. The winner of the Private Terms Stakes typically races next in either the Federico Tesio Stakes (Preakness Trial) at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD or the Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York, NY.[1]


This race is named for Private Terms, (born 1985) a fine runner who won 13 of his 17 starts, including the Grade I Wood Memorial Stakes, the Grade II Gotham Stakes, the grade two Massachusetts Handicap, the grade two General George Handicap and the grade three Federico Tesio Stakes. He had career earnings of $1,243,947 and a total of nine stakes victories. In his retirement Private Terms has had great success siring millionaires stakes winners Soul of the Matter and Afternoon Deelites. He has an outstanding success rate as a sire having 73% of his progeny win races and 11% of his progeny going on to become graded stakes winners.[2]
