Over at Picks and Ponderings, I take on the Derby and Oaks prep races at Keeneland and Oaklawn.
Keeneland’s card features a contentious and oversubscribed edition of the Blue Grass (GI), as well as a compact but high-quality field in the Ashland Stakes (GI).
Over at Oaklawn, the fillies take centre stage in the Fantasy Stakes (GIII). There is no corresponding Derby prep quite yet; the Arkansas Derby comes next week, on the meet’s closing weekend.
Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, read my previews of the three-year-old preps at Keeneland and Oaklawn, and let me know in the comments what you think!
