A quick reference tool meant to help the newer fan (like me!) Note: Most links are current, however, some links update as of the Friday before Saturday race day. I usually start posting the cards for the weekend races on Wednesday afternoon. Up until the actual cards are available, I sometimes use Horse Racing Nation's "Stakes Tracker" for a 'probable' card.
DRF: Weekend stakes preview - videos
HEADLINES: PENNSYLVANIA DERBY - PARX: RATTLESNAKE BRIDGE will seek to move forward from his second in the Travers in Satuday's $1,000,000 Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby. He will face challenges by RULER ON ICE, he early favorite, but some say TO HONOR AND SERVE is the horse to beat. The GALLANT BLOOM H - BELMONT: POMEROY'S PISTOL will be the lone three year old filly in a field of her elders in the Gallant Bloom H on Saturday. The 6.5f Grade 2 sprint for f/m will include multiple stakes winner TAR HEEL MOM and TAMARIND HALL. Pomeroy's Pistol is using the Gallant Bloom as a prep for the Breeders Cup Fillies and Mares Sprint. KENT STAKES - DELAWARE PARK: Denied a sweep of Arlington Park's Mid-America Triple by a strong European contingent in the August 13 Secretariat S. (G1), WILLCOX INN (Harlan's Holiday) still rates as one of the leading three-year-olds on grass in the U.S. The Mike Stidham trainee can reaffirm that view Saturday in the $250,000 Kent S. (G3) at Delaware Park, which is scheduled at nine furlongs on the turf. KENTUCKY CUP - TURFWAY: The Kentucky Cup features two-time Grade 1 hero GENERAL QUARTERS (Sky Mesa) and Grade 2 winner WORKIN FOR HOPS (City Zip), but neither of them rates as the morning-line favorite. That distinction goes to the Mike Maker-trained BARYSHNIKOV (Empire Maker), who has been tabbed as the slight choice at 3-1 to earn his first graded victory. BLUEGRASS CAT JUVENILE - TURFWAY PARK: In the Juvenile division, HANSEN will be looking to duplicate his spectacular debut on September 9 which he won by 12+ lengths. SELENE STAKES - WOODBINE: Never a factor in the Alabama Stakes (gr. I) one month ago, Queen's Plate winner Inglorious gets back on Woodbine's Polytrack for the $250,000 Selene Stakes (Can-III) Sept. 25. Full cards, more races, news and other details listed below.
