    Los Al Futurity Added to Derby Points Series
    HorseRacingNation.com August 27, 2014
    The $500,000 Los Alamitos Futurity (Grade I) has been added to the list of races that comprise the 2014-15 “Road to the Kentucky Derby.” The series of 35 select races – 19 “Prep Season” races and 16 “Championship Series” races – will determine which horses qualify to the 141st running of the $2 million guaranteed Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (Grade I) on Saturday, May 2, 2015.
    The 1 1/16-mile Los Alamitos Futurity, a race formerly known as the Hollywood (1981-2006) and CashCall (2007-13) Futurity at the now-shuttered Betfair Hollywood Park, will be run for the first time at Los Alamitos Race Course – the home base for 2014 Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome – on Saturday, Dec. 20. The race produced six Kentucky Derby winners during its run at Hollywood Park.

  • Few changes to Kentucky Derby, Oaks qualifying system: http://www.drf.com/news/few-changes-kentucky-derby-oaks-qualifying-system
  • KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 48s
    Good news for #KyDerby futures players: winter book @WynnLasVegas to open on Monday. Generous prices w/ no clear cut fave at this stage.
  • KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 37s
    Oddsmaker extraordinaire Johnny Avello @WynnLasVegas says Cozmic One & Jess's Dream likely to open in 175/1 range for #KyDerby.
  • KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 1m
    Willing to wager that first #KyDerby futures action @WynnLasVegas will be on either Cozmic One or Jess's Dream.
  • Yeah, now you post the Derby Trail schedule. I spent hours last week trying to find it... I'm on dial-up and so many sites are not available to me.
  • KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 20s
    Breeders' Cup Juvenile futures to open @WynnLasVegas shortly after #KyDerby book. Probably by mid to late next week.
  • KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 41s
    1st draft of #KyDerby futures to open Monday @WynnLasVegas contains nearly prospects.
  • This is so stupid and pointless. Neither colt is entered for the Derby
    KY Derby Contenders ‏@DerbyContenders 1m
    Willing to wager that first #KyDerby futures action @WynnLasVegas will be on either Cozmic One or Jess's Dream.
