The Adirondack Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race first run in 1901. Held in the middle of August at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York, the Adirondack Stakes is open to two-year-old fillies willing to race six and a half furlongs on the dirt. It is a Grade II event with a current purse of $200,000 (raised from $150,000 in 2012.)[1]

Named for the Adirondack Mountains of northeastern New York State, the race was first run in 1901 as a handicap for two-year-olds of either sex. Beginning in 1930 the race was restricted to fillies. Since inception, the Adirondack has been contested at various distances:

  • 5.5 furlongs : 1952-1955
  • 6 furlongs : 1901-1910, 1913-1945, 1962-1993, 2005
  • 6.5 furlongs : 1994-2003, 2006–present

This race was at Belmont Park in 1943, 1944, and 1945; and at Jamaica Racetrack in 1953 and 1954. It was not run in 1911 and 1912; from 1946 to 1952, from 1956 to 1961 and in 2004.
