Weekend Stakes Action: Illinois Derby Edition

Matthew Stockman

The major Kentucky Derby preps are finished but there's still plenty of good racing taking place from coast to coast.

I'll be away from the computer most of the weekend as I attempt to get a bunch of tasks done before the insanity of Derby week descends upon us, but there are quite a few good races to keep tabs on this weekend. Charles Town runs the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic tonight ($1.5 million), which I'm guessing is the richest race in North America run on a bull-ring. Should be an interesting race.

Below is the schedule for some of this weekend's major stakes action from across the country:

Date Track Race Gr. Age Sex Dist. Surf.
20-Apr CT Charles Town Classic 2 4up 9.0 Dirt
