The TOP FLIGHT Handicap is named for the fine filly who carried the silks of C. V. Whitney in 1931 and 1932. Top Flight won 12 of 16 career starts for earnings of $275,900, and was never beaten by a member of her own gender. As a 2-year-old, Top Flight was unbeaten in seven starts, all of them stakes, and beat colts in the Futurity at Belmont Park, the Saratoga Special, and Pimlico Futurity. The Top Flight was run at Belmont Park at 1 1/16 miles prior to 1961. Run at 1 1/8 miles 1961-93, one mile 1994-2010, and 1 1/16 miles 2012-present. Not run in 2011. In 2006 Rahys’ Appeal finished first but was disqualified.
