HistoryEdit

The event was inaugurated on 19 December 1990 as the Miesque Stakes at Hollywood Park Racetrack as a race for three year old fillies over a distance of ​1 116 miles and was won by Dead Heat in a time of 1:41 flat.[2] The following year the event was restricted to two-year-old fillies and the distance was decreased to one mile.[3]

The event was named in honor of the mare Miesque, who won the Breeders' Cup Mile twice and was the United States Champion Female Turf Horse in 1987 and 1988.

In 1995 the event was classified as Grade III.[3]

The 2005 edition of the Miesque Stakes had to be canceled because the newly planted Hollywood Park's turf course had failed to root properly.[4]

When Hollywood Park closed in 2013, the race was renamed in honor of the actor Jimmy Durante as part of a Del Mar rebranding initiative to evoke "old Hollywood cool".[5]
