The Troy, named for the seat of Rensselaer County, was first contested at a mile on the turf for 4-year-olds and up in 2004 and run under the same conditions the following year. In 2006, the distance was changed to 5 ½ furlongs on the turf, but was still restricted to 4-year-olds and up. Beginning in 2011, the race was open to 3-year-olds and up. The city of Troy, located on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, has close ties to the nearby cities of Albany and Schenectady, forming a region known as the Capital District.

In 2014, an abudance of rain necesitated the move of the race from the turf and two the main track, where it was run at 5 1/2 furlongs.
