Bio from NYRA.com
The DIANA HANDICAP is named for Diana, who was the mythological goddess of the hunt. Six fine mares, Miss Grillo, Searching, Tempted, Shuvee, Hush Dear, and Glowing Honor have won the Diana twice. Hall of Fame mare Gamely would be included on this list but for the fact that she became the first winner to be disqualified in the Diana, in 1968. She did, however, come back to win this race in 1969. Shuvee not only won the Diana twice, but she also holds the record for the most weight carried to a win in this race, 128 pounds, in the 1971 renewal.
Since its inaugural running in 1939, and until 1973, the DIANA HANDICAP was run on the main track at its present distance of a mile and a furlong. Run at Belmont Park in l943, l944, and l945. Run on the main track prior to l973. Run in two divisions in l973, l982, and l983. In 1968, Gamely finished first, but was disqualified and placed second. In 1989, Wooing finished first, but was disqualified and placed second.
