October 18, 2019
The Valley View Stakes is named for Kentucky’s oldest recorded commercial business, the Valley View Ferry. In operation since 1785, the ferry crosses the Kentucky River to connect Fayette and Madison counties. The Valley View was inaugurated in 1991 and was run as a late-closing event through 1993. Pin Oak Farm, located near Versailles, Ky., began sponsoring the race in 2007.
In 2018 Colonia (FR) captured the Pin Oak Valley View for owners Madaket Stables, Michael Dubb, Maurice Lagasse, and Haras d'Etreham, trainer H. Graham Motion and jockey Joe Bravo.
