The Nursery Stakes was one of the original races held at the inaugural opening of Jerome Park, on the outskirts of New York City, in September 1866. When New York City made clear its intentions to purchase the site to build a reservoir, the American Jockey Club purchased new land about two miles east of Jerome Park, funded by John A. Morris. The new course, named in his honor, opened for racing in August of 1889, and the Jerome Park races were transferred to Morris Park in 1890, when Jerome Park closed. In 1905, when the lease on the land at Morris Park was not renewed, most of the races were transferred to the newBelmont Park, which held its inaugural meeting in May of 1905.

*Run as an overnight allowance race 1935, held in two divisions, after which it was discontinued.
**Cherry Pie traces to Pompadeur, an American-bred mare by imp. Valient, born in the mid-eighteenth century; the family is not numbered and cannot be traced further back.
