Description

Thoroughbred rookies. This historic “Hopeful Stakes” Trophy, which was first run in 1903, represents the very best potential young horses that debut at the near close of the Thoroughbred season.   This is the biggest showcase debut there is for the two-year-old horses at historic Saratoga Race Course.
The Hopeful is a Grade I Stakes race of the highest caliber and a highlight at Saratoga Race Course.
  Many of these youngsters have gone on to win the Belmont and the Triple Crown and other famous Grade I races including Hall of Fame horses Whirlaway,  Afleet Alex,  Affirmed, and Secretariat.  In this case,  the 2-year-old,  “Rest Your Case” won it in 1971, the season before Secretariat!
Rest Your Case was ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Jacinto Vasquez, representing the Cragwood Stables.

Jacinto Vásquez (born January 4, 1944 in Panama) is a retired Hall of Fame thoroughbred jockey. He rode two Kentucky Derby winners, Foolish Pleasure in 1975 and Genuine Risk in 1980. He was also the regular jockey for the filly Ruffian. During his career Vasquez was the only jockey to defeat Secretariat three times: in the Wood Memorial with Angle Light, in the Whitney Handicap aboard Onion, and in Secretariat’s maiden race aboard Quebec. He was elected to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Calder Hall of Fame in 1999.

Charles W. Engelhard, Jr. was a businessman who took over the family business in 1950 after his father passed away. In 1958, Charles W. Engelhard, Jr. consolidated the family’s many diversified holdings to form Engelhard Industries, Inc. as a publicly held company listed on the New York Stock Exchange. He also expanded the company’s product line to serve the automotive, petroleum, chemical, electronics, aerospace, aviation, glass, and synthetic fiber industries. One of his hobbies became horse racing and his stable, Cragwood, was quite successful. Two of Cragwood’s best were American Grass Champions, Assagai and Hawaii.

Charles W. Engelhard, Jr. died in 1971. Mrs. Charles Englehard presented, as a gift to the Hall of Fame, a large collection of American Racing Trophies that were won by the horses of the Cragwood Stables.
