New York State, the 11th state to be admitted to the Union, is popularly known as the EMPIRE State. New York has long been a leader in the political, cultural, and economic life of the United States. It has been called the Empire State since before 1800, a reference to its wealth and variety of resources, and probably derived from a comment, attributed to George Washington, that predicted that New York would become the seat of the new empire. The Empire State Building stands as a Manhattan skyscraper, located on 5th Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets, which, when it was completed in 1931, was the tallest building in the world at 1,250 feet.

The EMPIRE STAKES for 2-year-old New York-breds was inaugurated in 1976. Run at Belmont 1989-91, 1993-95, and 1997-present; at Saratoga in 1992; and at Aqueduct in 1996. Run at 5 1/2 furlongs in 1989. In 1994, the Empire Stakes was renamed as the EMPIRE CLASSIC. It was previously run for 2-year-olds at six furlongs 1976-88 and 1990-93. Run at 1 1/8 miles 1994-present.
