Longfellow Stakes

The Longfellow Stakes is a Thoroughbred horse race run each year in June at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey. A six furlong sprint for either gender aged three and up, the ungraded Longfellow offers a purse of $65,000 and a trophy.

The race, inaugurated in 1952, began as an eight furlong event. From 1963 to 1967 it went off at eight and a half furlongs. In 1968 it stretched out to nine furlongs and remained at that distance until 1996. In 1997, it became a six furlong race.

The Longfellow is named for the Hall of Famer Longfellow, one of America's greatest racehorses as well as one of the greatest stallions of the 19th Century.
