The Messenger Stakes
From Wikipedia, Messenger Stakes


The Messenger Stakes is an American harness racing event for 3-year-old pacing horses. It was organized in 1956 at the Roosevelt Raceway in New York to join with the Cane Pace and the Little Brown Jug to create the Triple Crown of Harness Racing for Pacers. The race is named in honor of Messenger, (1780-1808), a horse foaled in England and later brought to the United States. As a sire, virtually all race horses in the U.S. can be traced back to Messenger.
