The KELSO HANDICAP was named for the Bohemia Stables’ five-time Horse of the Year from 1960 to 1964, inclusive. Bred by Mrs. Richard Dupont, Kelso won 39 of his 63 races and earned $1,977,896. Among Kelso’s accomplishments were five Jockey Gold Cup victories and a sweep of the 1961 Handicap Triple Crown (Metropolitan, Brooklyn, and Suburban).

Run at two miles on the main track at Aqueduct from 1980 to 1982. Not run in 1983. Run at 1 ¼ miles on the turf from 1984 to 1987. Distance changed to one mile in 1988. In 2009, the Kelso was taken off the turf and transferred to the main track. The following year, the race became a regular dirt fixture.
