St. Louis Derby

The St. Louis Derby run at Fairmount Park in Collinsville, Illinois held its inaugural race on August 26, 2006. Open to three-year-old thoroughbred horses of either gender, and run at one and one sixteenth miles on the dirt, this ungraded stakes race offers a purse of $250,000, funded privately by local business men.

This race was formerly called the Fairmount Derby and as a Grade III race had a checkered career. Inaugurated in 1926, it ran until 1930 where it was discontinued but apparently later run at a different track. At the moment (2008) it once again appears to be discontinued.
