Triple Crown News Minute Presented By Kentucky Equine Research: Del Mar’s Shared Belief

We’re down to the final four Kentucky Derby qualifying points races for the Sept. 5 Kentucky Derby, with Saturday’s Shared Belief Stakes at Del Mar near San Diego, Calif., the lone Derby prep race of the weekend.

Coming up next will be the Aug. 8 Travers Stakes (Saratoga) , Aug. 9 Ellis Park Derby (Ellis Park) and Aug. 15 Pegasus (Monmouth Park).

The Shared Belief, which offers 50-20-10-5 to the top four finishers, drew six entrants, but Bob Baffert will scratch Uncle Chuck and send this son of Uncle Mo to the Travers.

Trainer Blaine Wright may opt for the Ellis Park Derby for Anneau d’Or, meaning all four remaining runners could receive Derby points. Honor A.P. will be heavily favored and already has all the points he needs to qualify for the Kentucky Derby.

In this edition of the Triple Crown News Minute, Ray Paulick and news editor Chelsea Hackbarth discuss the recent Haskell Stakes and offer their thoughts on how the Shared Belief will be run and whether anyone has a chance to upset the favorite.
