First run in 1918, the Schuylerville is named for a town located 12 miles east of Saratoga Springs in upstate New York. Schuylerville was the country home of General Philip Schuyler, who served as a member of the Continental Congress until he was appointed a Major General of the Continental Army in June, 1775. In command of the Northern Department, Schuyler planned the Invasion of Canada and was active in preparing a defense against the Saratoga Campaign, part of the British strategy to cut the American Colonies in two by invading and occupying New York State in 1777. The Schuylerville was on occasion run at Belmont Park and old Jamaica; prior to 1960 and from 1962-68 it was contested at 5 ½ furlongs.
