The 1 5/8 mile turf race was inaugurated in 2004 and named in honor of John’s Call, who competed on the flat and over jumps, winning or placing in 30 of 40 starts and earning $1,571,267. Purchased as a yearling in 1992 by Douglas Joyce for $4,000 and trained by Tom Voss, the gelding had his best year in 2000, when hewon the Sword Dancer Invitational by 9 ½ lengths, becoming at age 9 the oldest runner to win a Grade 1 race at Saratoga. That year he also won the Grade 1 Turf Classic Invitational at Belmont Park and finished third in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf. In 2006, the race was run at 1 3/16 miles on the dirt.
