If you love turf racing you've got to love Saturday's card at Colonial Downs. Fourteen races on tap with all of them on the grass highlighted by the Grade 3 Virginia Oaks and the Grade 2 Virginia Derby. The Dale Romans trained Paddy O'Prado and Todd Pletcher's Interactif headline the Virginia Derby field. Stately Victor, winner of the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes, is also entered in the Derby.
I'll have more on both the Oaks and the Derby later on in the week, plus a look at the entire turf-centric card as there are a couple of juvenile races on the lawn that could potentially produce a Breeders' Cup runner in either the Juvenile Turf or Juvenile Filly Turf.
Below are the entries for Virginia Oaks and Virginia Derby.
