First look at 2016-17 Enlightened Derby/Oaks Trails

At last, and not too soon after a failed PC update and subsequent PC crash, I was able to rescue my precious data and present the first fruits of the next season of Enlightened Trails.  This series, 3rd in the making, is my attempt at building the ideal Kentucky Derby contender and starter.  See my highlighted post for more about how this project has come together.

My source for info is strictly’s Stakes Calendar, which displays every single stakes race from every track as reported by the tracks themselves.  There is hardly any 3YO races drawn up in stone, but that will certainly be revealed by the end of the Breeders Cup weekend in November.

I will highlight all of the races in this year’s Trails, provide analysis and predictions of each race days in advance.   First up will be 3 races on July 2, the Bashford Manor for colts, and then the Churchill Downs Debutante and the Juan Gonzalez Memorial for fillies.

Yes, I have yet to fill in the division and points totals. Much of that info will come together once many of the 3YO races are announced.  The divisions will really be based on where the Graded stakes races are.
