After a very busy March 7 Saturday featuring three key prep races for the 2020 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve, the action continues on March 14 with two more preps. The $1 million Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park offers qualifying points for Derby 146 on a 50-20-10-5 scale to the top four finishers, while the $250,000 Jeff Ruby Steaks at Turfway Park distributes qualifying points on a 20-8-4-2 scale.

The Rebel Stakes and the Jeff  Ruby Steaks will be shown live during a four hour broadcast of “America’s Day at the Races” presented by America’s Best Racing. The NYRA-produced show will also feature live races from Aqueduct and other tracks, including the Bourbonette Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Turfway Park, airing from 3-7 p.m. ET on FS2. "America's Day at the Races" will also air on FS2 from 3-6:30 p.m. ET Sunday, March 15. 

"America's Day at the Races" is hosted by Greg Wolf with a broadcast team of handicappers and racing analysts that includes Andy Serling, Maggie Wolfendale, Richard Migliore, Gary Stevens, Michelle Yu, Nancy Holthus, Laffit Pincay III, Acacia Courtney and Jonathan Kinchen.
