This weekend is a bit light on graded stakes, with the Breeders’ Cup prep season having mainly wound down over the last two weeks. Still, there are two graded contests this weekend, and both are previewed at Picks and Ponderings. I took a look at the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland, a Grade I affair for three-year-old turf route fillies. Paul dove into the Knickerbocker Stakes, a Grade III for the older set at Belmont.
Take a look at each of our previews, and let us know what you think. If you really agree or really disagree with something we have to say, or just have a question, don’t be shy to leave us a comment!
