Gazelle Stakes

The Gazelle Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race raced annually at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Open to three-year-old fillies, it is a Grade I event run over a distance of one and one-eighth miles on dirt. The race is sometimes a stepping stone to the Breeders' Cup Distaff.

Inaugurated in 1887, the first New York-bred winner of an Eclipse Award, Saratoga Dew, won this race in 1992. That year she was American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly‎.

The Gazelle was run at Gravesend Race Track from 1887 to 1916, at Aqueduct Racetrack from 1917 to 1955, in 1960, and from l962 to l968. It was not run from 1911 to 1916, nor from 1933 to 1935. Originally set at a mile and sixteenth from 1900 to 1958, it was set at one mile in l959 and 1960. From 1917 through 1920, it was open to fillies three-years-old and up.
