Comely

Comely

[kuhm-lee]
Comely (foaled 1912) was an American Thoroughbred filly racehorse. Bred and raced by James Butler, owner of the Empire City Race Track, her sire was Disguise who raced in England for owner/breeder James R. Keene and was the winner of the 1900 Jockey Club Stakes and who also ran third in that year's Epsom Derby. Both her grandsire and damsire were elected to the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame.

Comely is best remembered for a remarkable performance as a two-year-old when she defeated older male horses to win the first running of the Fall Highweight Handicap in 1914. The Comely Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York is named in her honor.
