HistoryEdit

The event is named after a neighborhood on the south side of Louisville known as Edgewood.[1] The event was inaugurated on 9 July 1983 as run on the dirt track, was won by the favorite Migola, ridden by Iowa born jockey Garth Patterson[2] by a margin of two lengths in a fast time of 1:4425.[3]

The event was not held in 1986 or 1990 and in 1991 the event was scheduled in June.[4]

In 1998 the event was moved to the turf track.[5] After years of instability with regards to the scheduling of the event, in 2002 Churchill Downs administration scheduled the event to be on the undercard of the Kentucky Oaks day meeting.[4]

In 2015 the event was classified as Grade III.[4]
