The C.C.A. Oaks was always run at Belmont Park except from 1963 to 1967, when it was run at Aqueduct, while Belmont Park was being rebuilt. It was called the "American Oaks" (since the Belmont was the American equivalent for the Epsom Derby), and named for the Coaching Club, an organization of well-to-do mostly New York upper crust types who shared an interest in coaching among their equestrian fun. Many members of the original Coaching Club were also members of the American Jockey Club, including August Belmont II, son of the founder of Belmont Park, William Vanderbilt, and others.
In 2010 the New York Racing Association made the decision to move this race from its long, historic association with Belmont Park to the opening week at Saratoga Springs meeting.
