"The Belmont Stakes trophy is a Tiffany-made silver bowl, with
cover, 18 inches high, 15 inches across and 14 inches at the
base. Atop the cover is a silver figure of Fenian, winner of
the third running of the Belmont Stakes in 1869. The bowl is
supported by three horses representing the three foundation
thoroughbreds Eclipse, Herod and Matchem. The trophy, a solid
silver bowl originally crafted by Tiffany's, was presented by
the Belmont family as a perpetual award for the Belmont Stakes
in 1926. It was the trophy August Belmont's Fenian won in 1869
and had remained with the Belmont family since
that time. The winning owner is given the option of keeping
the trophy for the year
their horse reigns as Belmont champion."
