A Brief History of the Just A Game Stakes

Every year in June, Belmont Park host the Just A Game Stakes, a Grade I race open to fillies and mares ages four and up. Inaugurated in 1994, the one mile race was named after the filly Just A Game, who gained notoriety racing in both the US and in Ireland. In 1980, the horse won an Eclipse Award as the American Champion Female Turf Horse, becoming the second ever winner of the title.

Past entries of the Just A Game Stakes include several notable horses, including Caress (1994 & 1995 winners), Perfect Sting (2000 winner), My Typhoon (2007 winner), and Ventura (2008 winner).
