The long road to the 2015 Kentucky Derby gets one step shorter this Saturday, Nov 22 as Delta Downs offers up its premiere race of the live racing fall season in the $1,000,000, GIII Delta Down Jackpot Stakes, for 2yo’s on the road to Louisville next May 2nd, at 1 1/16 mile, over the Delta Downs main track!
This race will be one of a long list of (10-4-2-1) early 2015 Derby Trail points tests with the winner garnering 10 Derby Points, 2nd – 4 points and so on, all towards a 2015 Kentucky Derby starting gate on the first Saturday of next May!
“2015 Kentucky Derby Points Leader Board” as of today!
Mr. Z, and Conquest Tsunami, both with 4 derby points already towards a 2015 derby gate, off 2nd place finishes in the GI Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland and GIII Grey Stakes at Woodbine, respectively, last out and will most likely be the early favorites!
Wake Up Nick, who is undefeated in 5 lifetime starts will surely catch some Saturday action here at Delta Downs!
Golden Actor, winner of the local prep for this million dollar GIII contest in the $200k Jean La Fitte Stakes last out with a solid 4 /1/4 lengths winning performance will surely take some local money here on Saturday!
The other Probables are – Saratoga Heater, Ocho Ocho Ocho, Red Button, Dekabrist, Far Right, Big Big Easy, Prime Engine, Unblunted, and Two Six Wins!
