The Valley View Stakes is named for Kentucky’s oldest recorded commercial business, the Valley View Ferry. In operation since 1785, the ferry crosses the Kentucky River to connect Fayette and Madison counties. The Valley View was inaugurated in 1991 and was run as a late-closing event through 1993. Pin Oak Farm, located near Versailles, Ky., began sponsoring the race in 2007.
The $150,000 Pin Oak Valley View (G3) will be run Oct. 21 for 3yo fillies going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. The nomination fee is $100; nominations close October 5.
