One of the most interesting Road to the Kentucky Derby prep races held each year is the $250,000 Remsen Stakes, which will take place this Saturday at Aqueduct.

For those 2-year-olds who started or developed too late for the TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Presented by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, there’s always the Remsen Stakes.

The official last day of fall is Dec. 20. For many racing fans, however, the Cigar Mile Presented by NYRA Bets at Aqueduct on Dec. 4 marks the end of the autumn racing season. The one-mile contest is traditionally the final grade 1 race of the year in New York, and brings together some of the country’s top middle distance horses.

Welcome to 2022 Kentucky Derby Prospect Snapshots, where we’ll take a look each week at a recent winner on the Triple Crown trail, usually from the Road to the Kentucky Derby schedule from which the race horses earn points toward qualifying.

In a monumental schedule change, Oaklawn Park’s 118th season opens Friday, adding December race dates to the calendar for the first time in the track’s history. The 66-day meet will be conducted largely on a Friday-Sunday basis and will conclude Sunday, May 8.
