ALABAMA STAKES 1952-1987 (33-Race Set)
How important is the Alabama Stakes? Well for one thing, it's the oldest race for fillies in the U.S. and it's the race that gives you one last look at the best three-year-old fillies in the country after their triple crown races have ended and often becomes the showdown race between the best from the East and West. Many consider the Alabama (Gr. I) as the defining moment; to win this highly prestigious race is an impressive achievement to add to any filly's resume' and most often is the deciding factor for year-end honors.
