The New York Derby is the second leg of the "Big Apple Triple," a grouping created in 1999 consisting of three races at three different racetracks in New York state and restricted to three-year-olds bred in New York state.[1] A horse who wins all three of the Big Apple Triple wins the purse total of $400,000 plus a $250,000 bonus. The first leg is the Mike Lee Handicap run at Belmont Park,[2] and the third leg is the Albany Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.[3]

The New York Derby is held at the Finger Lakes Racetrack in Farmington, New York and is restricted to three-year-olds of either gender bred in New York state. It is run at a mile and one/sixteenth on the dirt (8.5 furlongs) and currently offers a purse of $150,000.[4]

This race was called the New York Breeders' Derby from 1969 to 1971, the New York Derby Handicap in 1974, and the New York Derby from 1977 to date.
