AMERICA'S TOP THOROUGHBREDS as of Feb. 19

Making the Grade, which will run through the 2019 Belmont Stakes, focuses on the winners or top performers of the key races, usually from the previous weekend, who could make an impact on the Triple Crown series. We’ll be taking a close look at impressive winners and evaluating their chances to win classic races based upon ability, running style, connections (owner, trainer, jockey), and pedigree.

There will still be doubts going forward, but after watching what Peter Redekop’s Anothertwistafate did Feb. 16 at Golden Gate Fields, it would be hard for anyone aligned with the horse not to be excited.

With a host of Southern California invaders entered to challenge him in the $100,000 El Camino Real Derby, the 3-year-old Scat Daddy colt defended his home track with signs of brilliance.

Down in New Orleans the horse they call “Wow” is simmering along the Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve like a fine batch of jambalaya.

The road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve winds through Hot Springs, Ark., on Monday Feb. 18, for the Grade 3, $500,000 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
