The final chances for Kentucky Derby points are available in pair of graded stakes races this weekend, one at Oaklawn Park and another at Keeneland. The Grade 1 Arkansas Derby offers points on a scale of 100-40-20-10, and the G3 Lexington Stakes offers them 20-8-4-2.

The Arkansas Derby features Rebel winner Magnum Moon against the Bob Baffert-trained Solomini. A field of nine will face the starter three weeks before the Run for the Roses. Several other interesting contenders include Tampa Bay Derby winner Quip and Sunland Derby runner-up Dream Baby Dream.

In the Lexington Stakes, the Keith Desormeaux trainee My Boy Jack will attempt to overwhelm the 12-horse field to score enough points to make the Derby field. Also at Keeneland, the G1 Jenny Wiley features a trio of Chad Brown trainees. as well as the ultra-consistent Cambodia.
