2013 $1,000,000 GIII Delta Downs Jackpot is coming – Pre – Entries with Free Past Peformances

delta downsJust when you thought the road to the 2014 Kentucky Derby had hit that long quiet stretch between the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and those early 3yo races this coming winter the $1,000,000, GIII Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes for 2yo at 1 1/16 mile over the Delta Downs main on Saturday, Nov 23rd down in Bayou State is fast closing in.

Free Past Performances

Goldencents, who won this thing here last year on his way to a GI Santa Anita Derby win and of course, his big front-running effort to take down this year’s B/C Dirt Mile title helps bring some gravitas to this GIII Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes making it one 2yo race you’ll want to keep a close eye on this year!

Still, it’s just 10 points toward a Derby gate for this year’s winner, but win here and maybe a good showings in some of the 2014 Derby trail contests and presto you’re a derby contender at Churchill on that first Saturday in May, as last year’s Derby runner-up Golden Soul got into the big race on just 14 points!
