NOTE: Aftermost week’s rankings in parentheses”Ron Flatter’s annual insights It’s time for our annual addition from Ron Flatter of the Vegas Stats and Information Network. He offers up some thoughts about the new alley to the Kentucky Derby. Ron, you’re up.
“Presuming there are any horses larboard to chase in them, Saturday’s breach runnings of the Arkansas Derby will be the aftermost of the appointed credibility preps for the Kentucky Derby.
“With four of the aboriginal 22 entries scratched, Charlatan and Nadal accept beneath obstacles amid them and a Bob Baffert ambit of this weekend’s accompanying appearance at Oaklawn Park. Nadal will still accept it tougher in his race, but both will be favored. With victories they should accept the credibility all-important to get into the Sept. 5 face-lifting of the Kentucky Derby.
“So what happens the abutting four months? Well, absolutely the abutting three months, aback there is no adventitious of a Derby basic afterwards Aug. 8. How will the remapped basic division look?
“With the absolution of the government in Kentucky, Churchill Downs has apprenticed cobbled calm affairs to get its delayed bounce accommodated started Saturday, May 16, the day commonly set abreast for the Preakness in Baltimore.
“With Santa Anita ambience Friday, May 15, for its reopening and accepted absolution from Los Angeles County, and with the New York Antagonism Association authoritative babble about accepting started anon at Belmont Park, is it too aboriginal to anticipate about makeshift Derby preps? Actuality are some contest that are apprenticed to be on the calendar:
“Matt Wynn Stakes. It is at Churchill Downs. It is an 8½-furlong Brand 3. Presuming it is run Saturday, May 30, why not? Would it be annual 100 credibility to the winner? That is a accomplished nuther question.
“Santa Anita Derby. This is a slam-dunk. It has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 6, which would accept been the day of the Belmont Stakes. (Even admitting NYRA has not formally adjourned it, does anyone absolutely accept that the Triple Crown will accessible with a 1½-mile chase afore any 3-year-old has gone 1¼ miles?) The purse for the Santa Anita Derby has been bargain from $1 actor to $400,000, but Churchill Downs has already set a antecedent this year with the Arkansas Derby by not acid its basic points. So it should be a win-and-you’re-in for the Kentucky Derby.
“Los Alamitos Derby. Dare to dream, right, Doc Allred? The chase is already set for July 4. The alone catechism may be whether Churchill Downs gives a Brand 3 chase annual alone $100,000 the abounding 100-40-20-10 credibility treatment. With two months larboard in the reconfigured basic season, maybe it would be a 50-pointer.
“The chase to be named. The alone 3-year-old stakes that is usually on the Del Mar agenda is the Shared Belief in backward August. Aback the Derby was pushed aback to Labor Day weekend, it was apprenticed appropriate that a appropriate stakes could be accounting and run in backward July or aboriginal August. Remember, it does not accept to be graded to get Churchill’s blessing. Aloof attending at the Springboard Mile, the Jerome and the El Camino Real Derby. Again, the catechism would be how abounding credibility to adhere on it.
“Haskell Invitational. Appropriate now the chase is appointed for Saturday, July 18. But that date was set afore aperture day of the Monmouth Park summer accommodated was pushed aback from May 23 to the weekend of July 4. Aloof as important, it was additionally set afore the Kentucky Derby was postponed. Whenever it is scheduled, it is should be a 100-pointer, alike if the $1 actor purse gets a shave. Alike if the administration at Monmouth do not appetite to say it out loud, they would accept to assignment about Saratoga. Speaking of which …
“Jim Dandy Stakes and Travers Stakes. This is area the agenda and altitude get tricky. The Aug. 29 date for the Travers would accept to be confused up to Aug. 1 or 8. The $1.25 actor purse adeptness be cut, but what about the 1¼-mile ambit of the race? And what would that in about-face do to the 1⅛-mile Jim Dandy, which is penciled in for Aug. 1? Moving it aback into July adeptness acquiesce Saratoga to host two Derby preps.
“This annual does not booty into annual contest such as the Iowa Derby on July 5, the Indiana Derby on July 11 and an accepted stakes on the constructed clue at Churchill Downs-operated Arlington Park. This presumes they all accessible this summer and run schedules abutting to what they accept in the past.
“Of course, the antagonism leaders in Kentucky accept already anticipation of all this. It is aloof a bulk now of putting it all on cardboard – and acquisitive that annihilation abroad happens to adapt their plans. One big derailment, afterwards all, is absolutely abundant for one lifetime.
