The Friday Show Presented By Diamond B Farm’s Rowayton: Feeling Preppy

The Kentucky Derby is less than one month away and this weekend’s Big Three prep races – the G2 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct, G2 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland and G1 Santa Anita Derby at Santa Anita – figure to sort out the leading contenders and help fill the Churchill Downs starting gate on May 1, as each race awards 100-40-20-10 qualifying points to the top four finishers.

Join Paulick Report publisher Ray Paulick, news editor Chelsea Hackbarth and bloodstock editor Joe Nevills for a lively discussion on these key races and their historical significance in terms of serving as a launch pad for Kentucky Derby winners.  Two of the three races – the Wood and the Santa Anita Derby – are seen as wide open, while unbeaten Essential Quality, last year’s 2-year-old champion, appears to tower over the field in the Blue Grass.

The Star of the Week is recognized for his influence in American classic races and in the two most recent Derby preps at Gulfstream and Turfway Parks, and Nevills makes his latest Toast to Vino Rosso taking a look at first-crop foals sired by the G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic-winning stallion standing at Spendthrift Farm.
