The VOSBURGH honors the late Walter S. Vosburgh, official handicapper for the Jockey Club and various racing associations, including the New York racetracks 1894-34. Vosburgh was also a turf historian and writer of note until his death in 1938. He assigned the weights for the first Experimental Free Handicap in 1933.

The VOSBURGH was run at Aqueduct in 1959, 1961-74, 1976-77, 1979, 1983, 1985, and 1986. Contested at seven furlongs 1940-02 and 6 ½ furlongs in 2003. It was run as the Vosburgh Handicap prior to 1979. In 1951, Miche finished first, but was disqualified. Run for all ages prior to 1958. Cassis and Paperboy dead heated for the win in 1944.
