TOP 3 YEAR OLD STAKES RACES FOR 2018

 Starting in 2013 a new points system called the "Road to the Kentucky Derby" where a specific series of 36 prep races each worth a specific amount of points will decide which horses get in the Derby. A similar system is also in place for the Kentucky Oaks but fillies who want in the Derby will have to compete in with the colts for Derby points. While those Derby points earned by fillies will also count toward the Oaks Oaks points will not count towards the Derby.
