Following the passing of renowned trainer Tom Voss in January of 2014, it was announced that the 2014 edition of the Turf Writers would be run in his honor. The race's official name is thus the New York Turf Wrtiers Cup Run in Memory of Thomas H. Voss.

The race over national fences was first run in 1938 and has been held at varying distances at Belmont Park and Aqueduct Racetrack as well as Saratoga. Not run from 1972-74, the Turf Writers Cup was contested at two miles on the turf as a flat event in 1985 at Belmont. One of the oldest organizations for journalists in America, the New York Turf Writers Association was founded in 1923.
