First run in 1980, the A.P. Smithwick Memorial did not attain stakes status until 1996. The race is named in memory of Alfred Patrick “Paddy” Smithwick, who died in 1973 at the age of 46. One of steeplechase racing’s brightest stars, he rode 398 winners during a career than began in 1945 as an amateur and ended in 1966 after a fall. He won the Temple Gwathmey four times, the New York Turf Writers’ Cup three times, and the American Grand National three times. Smithwick was inducted into racing’s Hall of Fame in 1973, a few months before his death from lung cancer.
