Girvin bests Louisiana Derby field in March 2017

Girvin bests Louisiana Derby field in March 2017


.
Girvin remains on top as since he was basically uncatchable by any except for Malagacy, who finished a slight but disappointing 5th in the Arkansas Derby, which stamped 2 Kentucky Derby tickets, and possibly 1-2 others that are on the bubble.
.
Classic Empire made his comeback from injury in dramatic fashion, doing everything he was supposed to in closing down the stretch to win the Arkansas. The 2yo champ is no worse for the wear this time and has shipped to Churchill Downs.
.
Conquest Mo Money had his second straight impressive 2nd place finish, putting him in the show if the owners front the late Triple Crown fee.
.
Lookin at Lee and Sonneteer finished 3rd and 4th and are on the outside of the bubble looking in. However, Thunder Snow may not ship to America, in what may be Suroor’s best contender yet, the late fee mentioned above has yet to be paid, and surely there will be some scratches in the top 20 over the next 3 weeks.
.
For the Japanese runners, the top points earner from Japan gets into the Kentucky Derby unless the connection declines; at that point the Derby slot is awarded to the 2nd or 3rd place horse if they accept. Right now it’s confusing because Epicharis won the Japan standings and also will get in as the UAE Derby runner-up which gave him 40 real Derby points. However, it’s uncertain if he will run for the roses, in which case, one of the other 2 below him would get an entry if they decided to ship.
