The Phoenix is the oldest stakes race in the United States, dating back to 1831 at the Kentucky Association track in Lexington. Originally named for the old Phoenix Hotel in Lexington, the race has been known as the Brennan, Chiles, Phoenix, Association, Phoenix Hotel Stakes and Phoenix Handicap. Last run at the Association track in 1930, the Phoenix was revived at Keeneland in the spring of 1937. From 1943-1945, the Phoenix was renewed as part of the Keeneland-at-Churchill Downs meetings. Prior to 1989, the Phoenix was run during the Spring Meet. Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC, one of Kentucky’s largest and most established law firms, became the race sponsor in 2011.
