First run in 1960, the Kilroe Mile has a rich history in American thoroughbred racing and some great names have won the race.
Open to horses aged four-year-old and above, the Frank E Kilroe Mile Handicap holds a purse of USD $400,000 and is typically ran in early March.
Remarkably not one mare had won the Frank E Kilroe Mile Handicap in over 50 runnings, as of 2010.
That all changed when Proviso won the eight furlong race, held at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, California, in 2010.
