“This is the End”, yes race fans, we’ve come to the bitter end of the 2014 Derby Trail this Saturday as Keeneland will host that “Last Call” for 2014 Derby Points, in the final wildcard, 10-4-2-1 race of the season in the $200,000, GIII Coolmore/Lexington Stakes, for 3yo’s, at 1 1/16 mile, over the Keeneland poly surface for the very last time as Keeneland switches out to a new dirt main at the conclusion of the 2014 spring meeting!
None of this year’s list of Probables (listed below) have enough derby points now plus the 10 points for winning here on Saturday to even unseat those horses on the 2014 Derby bubble, let alone one of the golden twenty, right now. Apparently, none of this year’s bubble horse’s connections have any interest in the 10 points for first or even the 4 points for 2nd here which would move someone up the Derby Points food chain, for sure!
So, here are the Probables for Saturday’s race,
So, the 2014 GIII Coolmore/Lexington Stakes will be more of a fond farewell to the 3yo poly track era here at Keenland, as next spring will bloom a brand new 3yo era here just off of Versailles Road with real dirt surface awaiting the 3yo “Class of 2015”!
