The 10-4-2-1 Derby Trail Points portion of this year’s Derby Trail season is coming to a close this coming holiday weekend!

The last of this year’s 10-4-2-1 Kentucky Derby Points races are being offered up this coming holiday weekend in a pair of graded 3yo races in the GIII El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate Fields this coming Saturday and the GIII Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn on the upcoming Monday holiday!

GIII El Camino Real Derby, will be a Tapeta surface, 2-turn, scrum at an interesting 1 1/8 mile distance with a purse of $200,000 and will be Golden Gate Field’s lone but modest contribution to the 2015 Kentucky Derby points trail offering up its 10 points to Saturday’s winner and the hope of bigger and better things ahead for that victor!

Conquest Typhoon, Metaboss, and Cross The Line are the most likely probables for this Saturday’s 3yo scrum!

Free Past Performances,

On this upcoming Monday, Presidents Day holiday, Oaklawn Park rolls out the first of its 3, graded 3yo tests of the season there in the GIII Southwest Stakes ,at 1 1/16 mile over the Oaklawn main track with a purse of $300,000 and 10-4-2-1 Kentucky Derby points to be divvied up!

There are some top quality 3yo names scheduled for this 2-turn dust-up in – Mr. Z, Bayerd, Far Right, War Story, Bold Conquest, along with The Truth Or Else, Kantune and Private Prospect!

Free Past Performances,

So, the El Camino Real Derby and the Southwest Stakes will ring down the curtain on this year’s 10-4-2-1 portion of the Kentucky Derby points season but at the same time will ring in the start of the 2015 Kentucky Derby Championship Series races, with (8), 50-20-10-5 points tests in round 1 and (7), 100-40-20-10 races in the 2nd and final round.

All of these races will offer the winners a sure-fire gate in Derby 141 at Churchill Downs this coming Saturday, May 2nd, which as of this posting is but a scant “81” days away now!
