Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Likely Entries in Toyota Blue Grass


McCraken (trained by Ian Wilkes), J Boys Echo (Dale Romans), Tapwrit (Todd Pletcher) and Practical Joke (Chad Brown) are all well-known candidates for the Toyota Blue Grasss Stakes.

Others on the radar for the April 8 race are Rusty Arnold's Wild Shot, third in the Tampa Bay Derby; Irap, the maiden that seems to show up for almost every dance for Doug O'Neill and most recently fourth in the Sunland Derby; and It’s Your Nickel, the John Battaglia Memorial winner trained by Ken McPeek.

NBC Sports Network will provide live coverage of the Toyota Blue Grass, along with the Wood Memorial and Santa Anita Derby, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. ET. Post time for the Toyota Blue Grass will be 6:17 p.m.
