Woodford Reserve will also sponsor the race immediately preceding the running of the Belmont Stakes. Named the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap, the 1 1/4th mile turf race carries a purse of $400,000 and is for three-year-olds and up.
"Woodford Reserve is proud to partner with Belmont Park and a distinguished race such as the Manhattan Handicap," said Wayne Rose brand director for Woodford Reserve. "As the only bourbon distillery to have its own stable of race horses, we are proud to be associated with another superior group of Thoroughbreds."
