This race was formerly known as the Gallant Man Stakes in honor of the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame horse, Gallant Man.

The National Museum of Racing was begun in Saratoga Springs in 1950. In 1955, the Museum moved to its present site on Union Avenue, across the street from Saratoga Race Course.

This race was run at the distance of a mile and an eighth from 1985 to 1995, then at a mile and a sixteenth in 1996 and 1997. In 1998, the distance was changed back to a mile and an eighth.[1]
