This year’s edition of the Busanda was originally scheduled for January 21, but was postponed because it did not originally fill. Rescheduled for Thursday, January 25, the race drew six entries to vie for a $100,000 purse, plus Road to the Kentucky Oaks points (10-4-2-1) for the top four finishers.
