The GI Santa Anita Hcp (“The Big Cap”) highlights another Super Saturday of Top Horse – Racing action that’s on tap this weekend – Probables

Another “Super Saturday” of great graded action from all around the country is coming right at you this Weekend!

More top-flight graded action is in the offing this coming Saturday as the 2015 Derby Trail rolls onto Aqueduct and the $400k GIII Gotham Stakes.

Tampa Bay Downs closes out its leg of the 2015 Derby Trail with their annual 3yo grand finale in the $350k, GII Tampa Bay Derby

as Santa Anita will offer up the $400k GII San Felipe Stakes.

All these races will be (50-20-10-5) Derby Points races and a sure-fire Derby gate is set to go to each winner!

But probably the $1,000,000, GI Santa Anita Hcp (“The Big Cap“) where Shared Belief is expect to run should draw most of the media hoopla this Saturday.

But don’t look for that natural rematch with HOY California Chrome this time, as The Chrome is packing for an overseas adventure to Dubai and a start in the $10,000,000 Grp 1 Dubai World Cup slated for March 28th, next!

El Kabeir, is coming out here looking to put a lock on one of this year’s derby gates with a top 3 finish on Saturday, but will probably be facing Classy Class and the up and coming Ocean Knight, others in here will be Blame Jim, Combat Diver, Dontbetwithbruno, Lieutenant Colonel and Tencendur

Tom Fool H. (gr. III) $200k 4&up 6f Dirt

Tampa Bay Downs,

Tampa Bay Derby (gr. II) $350k 3yo 8.5f Dirt, where Carpe Diem looks to make his 2015 debut in here, but he’ll have to deal with the very tough Divining Rod, Danzig Moon, Ami’s Flatter, and maybe the speedy Souper Colossal.

Feathered, Include Betty, Quality Rocks, and Callisto, in this 2-turn turfer for the 3yo ladies!
