That chance they took on Tom’s d’Etat sure paid off!

Churchill requirements for jockeys to ride in the Oaks/Derby- it’s the right thing to do!

What about the Saratoga jockeys who have Derby mounts?  Would they then be allowed back at Saratoga to run in the Woodward????  That would go against the current rules in place at the Spa.

I guess they’ll have to pick or choose? Unless they do special favors like Del Mar did for Mike Smith ?

This is needed I agree but there could be a lot of new jockeys on the Derby horses!  Have my doubts the race even goes off.

Governor to meet and decide if a change needs to be done for the Derby. The full article discloses some testing sites are ending, the Lexington area is being consumed to test incoming college students. If testing is decreased instead of increasing, I don’t think there should be fans in the stands?

Thanks for posting that.  Things really do need to change.

 Clearly the right decision: i  think they thought that by September the virus would be under control: instead, it is worse now than it was back when they cancelled the Derby.
