The Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes, which through 1985 was restricted to horses owned by members of the TCA, was run as an added-money event for the first time in 1981. The race evolved from the TCA Dinner Purse, which was run as an overnight allowance race each spring from 1941-1980, with the exception of 1945. The TCA is headquartered in Lexington. In 1995, the TCA race was moved from the spring meeting to the fall meeting.
