The Jaipur Invitational Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race for horses aged four years old and older held over a distance of six furlongs on the turf scheduled annually in early June at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. The event currently carries a purse of $400,000.[1] A Grade III event for most of its history, in 2019 it was upgraded to Grade I.[2]

History[edit]

The race is named after Jaipur, the Champion three-year-old colt of 1962 who ran one of the most memorable Travers Stakes on record.[3]

The race was run at seven furlongs in 1986 to 2005, and again from 2011 to 2013. All other renewals have been at six furlongs.

For three years (1986, 1994, and 1995), it was run in two divisions.

In 2013, heavy rain forced the Jaipur to be moved from the turf to the sloppy main track. Because of the move, the stakes race lost its Grade III status for that renewal.[1]
