    Ready to start looking for NEXT YEAR'S Derby Horse?

    You have your chance starting today?
    Keeneland will have its' first 2YO Maiden race of the year in the first race, post time 1:05 Eastern.

    All of the horses are essentially $10k or less, with decent sires, running for $60k. So aspirations for these guys are low. But you never know.

    One of the final KYD preps is coming up this weekend.

    The Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park:
    Concert Tour is the likely favorite. Caddo River will try to rehabilitate his reputation after his poor showing in the Rebel.
    This will be the last of the big, 100 points to the winner, derby preps.

    Waiting on the Lexington Stakes entries at Keeneland to round out the weekend KYD point stakes.

    Lexington Stakes 2021

    Here are the PPs for the Lexington Stakes:

    There are a couple of horses we have mentioned earlier in here.
    Proxy, who has hit the board in a couple of KYD preps through Louisiana, but not won anything.
    Bezos comes in from Santa Anita, with a lofty reputation, hoping that the 20 KYD points winners share will be enough to qualify for the big race in 3 weeks.

    Of the new shooters, Swiftsure looks the most interesting. He is undefeated, with 2 races under his belt. But only at 6f. But his pedigree suggests he will want to go longer. He has the connections (Assmussen) to get him there.

    OK, lots of races yesterday.

    At Keeneland, on a very sloppy racetrack, a horse named King Fury won at odds of 18-1:

    Here is a discussion of the race from the Blood Horse:
    A lot of weird stuff, perhaps due to track conditions. Bezos backed up through the field after cutting the fractions. I don't know what that means.

    Meanwhile, at Oaklawn Park. There was great racing, including the Arkansas Derby:
    This race was won by Super Stock at 12-1:
    The son of Dialed-In had license to improve off his first time out, and could be a contender.
    This horse is trained by Steve Asmussen, and is partially owned by Steve's son Keith. Keith was actually the jockey for this horse for his first 3 starts of his career. You don't hear that for KYD contenders these days.
    Concert Tour is (obviously) no longer undefeated, and finished a well beaten third. Caddo River was third.

    In other races, C Z Rocket again beat Whitmore in the Count Fleet Stakes
    Whitmore had a little traffic trouble, but C Z Rocket made a bold sweeping move and would not be denied.
    Count Fleet was a great race horse. I chanced upon his grave site once when visiting Stoner Creek stud in Lexington Kentucky.
