Picks and Ponderings: 2018 Sunland Derby and Sunland Park Oaks preview

Sunday’s card at the New Mexico racetrack features a pair of points races: the Grade 3, $800,000 Sunland Derby for open company, and the $200,000 Sunland Park Oaks for fillies and mares.  The races aren’t 100-point preps like the ones in Louisiana the day before, but with 50, 20, 10, and 5 points available to their top four finishers, they still award enough points to constructively guarantee their winners a spot in Kentucky come May, and should get their second-place finishers most of the way to a berth.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Sunday’s three-year-old points races at Sunland Park, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
