Flamingo Stakes was an American Thoroughbred horse race for
three-year-olds held annually in March at the Hialeah Park Race
Track in Hialeah, Florida. Run over a distance of nine furlongs,
the inaugural race took place in 1926 at the Tampa, Florida
racetrack. Until 1937 it was known as the Florida Derby. Run in
March, at one time the Flamingo Stakes was an important early prep
race for the Kentucky Derby. A Grade I race until 1989, it drew
some of the top East Coast colts including a number of future
National Museum of Racing and Hall of Famers. In 1948, Citation won
the Flamingo Stakes under regular jockey Al Snider. Six days later
Snider drowned while out fishing in the Florida Keys and Eddie
Arcaro would replace him on Citation, going on to win the U.S.
