36th Running • 1 1/16 miles • 3-year-olds


The Lexington first was contested by 2-year-olds during Keeneland's inaugural meeting in 1936. The race was run as an overnight handicap for 3-year-olds and older horses from 1938-1941. It returned to the stakes schedule in 1984 when officials elevated the Calumet Purse – an important allowance race for 3-year-olds – to an added-money event and renamed it the Lexington Stakes. Stonestreet Farms began sponsoring the race in 2017. The purse increased $50,000.

The $200,000 Stonestreet Lexington (G3) is for 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. The nomination fee is $150; nominations close March 29.
