A field of nine fillies will run in Saturday afternoon’s Acorn Stakes. The 3:22 p.m. ET post time comes three hours and 15 minutes in front of the June 8 main event at Belmont Park, the Belmont Stakes.
We still have a little while to wait for the 2019 Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, but early odds are out for the third and final leg of the Triple Crown.
There is plenty of indecision to go around. And here we have the unique situation where the first four horses who crossed the finish line a couple of weeks ago in the Kentucky Derby (including the DQ's Maximum Security) are out of this one.
The post positions have been drawn and the field is set for the 144th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday May 18 with a post time of 6:48 p.m. ET.
The crown jewel of Friday’s race day at Pimlico Race Course is the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes. This Grade 2 race features some of the top fillies in the sport and is the main event on the day before the Preakness Stakes.
We’ll take a more detailed look at the odds and the race handicap for the Preakness next week after the post positions are drawn, but it is never a bad idea to get an early look at the field.
The 145th Run for the Roses is set for Saturday May 4 at world-renowned Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. This year’s Kentucky Derby features a full field of 20 three-year-old horses and post time is at 6:50 p.m. ET.
The spotlight race on Friday May 3 at Churchill Downs is the Kentucky Oaks. The signature three-year-old filly race is the day before the Kentucky Derby and one of the best showcases for female horses in all of racing.
This the first time that Churchill Downs has hosted the Breeders Cup races since 2011, when Drosselmeyer took down the title. 5:44 p.m. ET on Saturday is the start time.
