More Kentucky Derby runners emerge after weekend

And Kentucky Oaks winners as various races gave points towards those two features.

At Saratoga the lightly-raced Paris Lights just got the better of Crystal Ball and is heading to the Oaks possibly with another start before then.

At Monmouth Park Authentic took out the Haskell but he's already qualified for the Derby.

It was a very close finish with Ny Trafffic only a nose away with Dr Post 4 ½ lengths away third.

The United Nations went to Aquaplane with Aussie-bred Paret a length away second.

Luis Saez, one of the jockeys in isolation due to Covid-19, will be out and able to ride at Saratoga on 24th provided he tests negative and gets a medical certificate to say he is fit to ride.  He is normally based in the New York jurisdiction.
