Sleepy Hollow Stakes

The Sleepy Hollow is an American ungraded restricted stakes race for two-year-olds Thoroughbreds held in the fall at Belmont Park, New York. Though not restricted to New York bred horses, this is not an open race: it is considered a race on the New York bred schedule.

At a distance of one mile, and in its 17th running in 2010, it's a major step up for talented and hopeful young horses. The Sleepy Hollow offers a purse of $100,000.

The race is named for the historic village of Sleepy Hollow, New York on the banks of the Hudson River made famous by the American writer, Washington Irving in his 1819 short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
