Horse racing action on the road to the May 1 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve continues, with three qualifying points prep races scheduled over the holiday weekend that extends to Presidents’ Day on Monday, Feb. 15.

On Saturday, Feb. 13, Fair Grounds hosts the Risen Star Stakes Presented by Lamarque Ford and Golden Gate Fields will run the El Camino Real Derby. (The Southwest Stakes, originally scheduled for Presidents’ Day at Oaklawn Park, has been rescheduled along with Oaklawn's other races from Feb. 13-15 due to expected snow and extremely cold temperatures in the Hot Springs area.) The El Camino Real Derby offers Derby points to the top four finishers on a 10-4-2-1 basis, while the Risen Star distributes points on a 50-20-10-5 basis.

The Risen Star Stakes will be showcased on the NYRA-produced “America’s Day at the Races” program along with races from Aqueduct and other tracks. Presented by America’s Best Racing and Claiborne Farm, the show is scheduled to air on FS2 Saturday, Feb. 13, Sunday, Feb. 14, and on President's Day, Feb. 15. 

The El Camino Real Derby and action from tracks including Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita Park will be shown on TVG as part of their usual comprehensive everyday coverage.

For live streaming coverage, the new show “Always Be Racing” returns this Friday, Feb. 12. Hosted by BlackJack Fletcher, the show is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. ET. “Always Be Racing” can be viewed on ABR's Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels as well as BlackJack Fletcher's Twitter account.
