Wadsworth Memorial Handicap

The Wadsworth Memorial Handicap is a Thoroughbred race for three year olds and up of either gender set at a distance of one and one eighth miles on the dirt. Run at Finger Lakes Race Track on the 4th of July each year (the track is 46 years old in 2007), the Wadsworth is an ungraded stakes race offering a purse of $50,000.

In 2007, in order to attract the dual classic winner (Kentucky Derby & Preakness Stakes), Funny Cide, to the 31st running of the Wadsworth, Finger Lake Race Track raised the purse to $100,000.

The Wadsworth will be in its 35th running in 2010.
