 The Kentucky Derby has been postponed until the first Saturday in September -that would be Sept 5--- what does that do to all the derby preps that are going on now?

It's a long, long road this year.

Will be interesting to see what races are used as preps now.  And when.

I’m surprised this has been posted already. Neither BH, DRF or Churchill website has posted this update yet. It will certainly be weird to see the Derby in September.

Derby Dozen this week, but does it really matter if the Derby ends up being the 3rd crown of the race????

So now I can see the Travers becoming a prep race this year for the KY Derby.  They would run it earlier in August, probably on the traditional Whitney weekend.  Now very anxious to see how Saratoga tweeks their stakes schedule.
