The BROOKLYN Handicap is named for one of the five boroughs that comprise New York City. Brooklyn and Manhattan were rival commercial centers before the two merged to form the modern-day New York City in 1898. Brooklyn was first settled by the Dutch in 1636 and named “Breucklen” (Dutch for “marshland”) after a town in Holland. Among the principal attractions in Brooklyn are the New York Aquarium, Coney Island, Fort Hamilton and Prospect Park. At one time, Brooklyn had its own Major League Baseball team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, winners of the 1955 World Series. In 2012, the Nets of the National Basketball Association relocated to Brooklyn. It is also said that one in every four Americans has some form of connection with Brooklyn.

The first winner of the BROOKLYN Handicap, in 1887, was Dry Monopole, familiar today as the name of champagne. Following Dry Monopole`s victory, a wine salesman took advantage of the attendant publicity by furnishing free champagne to the fans in attendance.

The "Handicap Triple" The Metropolitan, Brooklyn, and Suburban handicaps began in 1891. Only four horses since have won these races in one racing year. The year, horse and respective weight carried in each race: 1913 Whisk Broom II (126, 139, 130); 1953 Tom Fool (130, 128, 136); 1961 Kelso (130, 133, 136); 1984 Fit To Fight (124, 126, 129).

The BROOKLYN Handicap was run at Gravesend 1887-1910; at Old Aqueduct 1914-44 and 1946-55; at Jamaica in 1956, 1958, and 1959; at Aqueduct 1960-74 and in 1976. Not run in 1911 and 1912. Run at 1 1/8 miles 1915-39; 1 3/16 miles 1956-59 and 1972-74; at 1 ¼ miles 1887-1914, 1940-55, 1960-71 and 1975-76; at 1 ½ miles in 1977 and 1978; at a mile and three eighths 1991-93. Returned to 1 1/8 miles 1994-2006. Run at one mile in 2007 and back at 1 ½ miles 2008-present. It was made an Invitational run under allowance conditions for the 2014 edition.
