Darley Alcibiades Stakes Race History

The Darley Alcibiades Stakes is a Grade I horse race run each year at Keeneland Race Course in Kentucky. First run in 1952, the race is named in honor of Hal Price Headley's champion mare Alcibiades. Alcibiades was the U.S. Champion Two-Year-Old Filly in 1929 and the U.S. Co-Champion Three-Year-Old Filly in 1930 (shared with Snowflake). As a successful broodmare, she produced several foals that ended up runners, including the 1937 American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt and notable sire in his own right.

Jockeys Don Brumfield and Rafael Bejarano both have three wins to their name and share the record for the winningest jockey. With his six wins, the legendary D. Wayne Lukas holds the record for most wins by a trainer.

As part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge Series, the winners of are granted a berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.
