The other Grade 1 races are the Maker's 46 Mile at Keeneland, which will feature reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan in his seasonal debut; the Apple Blossom for fillies and mares at Oaklawn Park, both races on Friday. On Saturday at Keeneland, two Grade 1 races for fillies and mares: the Jenny Wiley and the Madison.  The Toyota Blue Grass at Keeneland and the Oaklawn Derby at Oaklawn Park wrap up the Grade 1 action and the two Derby preps.

The Arkansas Derby was a great race this year. I think an underdog like Danza is the kind of story people can get behind.
