The POKER is named for the horse who defeated champions Assagai and Buckpasser in the 1967 Bowling Green Handicap. Poker sired My Charmer, the dam of Seattle Slew, and Bonnie’s Poker, the dam of Silver Charm.

Run at 1 1/16 miles 1985 and at 1 ¼ miles in 1986.

In the 1998 running, Elusive Quality not only established a new course record (1:31 3/5 over the Widener Turf Course at Belmont Park), but he also established what is believed to be a world record for one mile on grass.
