HORSE RACING | One Month Until Kentucky Derby 144

Kentucky Derby 144 is exactly one month from Thursday.

This Saturday though, there are three Derby prep races taking place across the country: Wood Memorial (Aqueduct), Blue Grass (Keeneland) and Santa Anita Derby (Santa Anita Park).

Horse Racing Nation editor Jonathan Lintner stopped by Sports Night on Thursday to discuss his expectations for Saturday’s Blue Grass Stakes:

As of Thursday, Audible and Noble Indy each lead the Road to the Kentucky Derby leaderboard. Both horses have 110 points each. Lintner talked about the way the points system is used to help determine the horses that run in the Kentucky Derby.:
