Top Three-Year-Olds Grace Saturday's Cards

With no straight three-year-old stakes on the Breeders' Cup docket, many track around the nation are featuring sophomores Saturday.

Parx features two $1 million events - the Grade 1 Cotillion for fillies run at a mile and a sixteenth and the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby at a mile and an eighth - both on the dirt.

Laurel Park will run the Grade 2 $400,000 Commonwealth Derby at a mile and an eighth on the grass while  Kentucky Downs presents the $200,000 Dueling Grounds Oaks, also on the sod.

Churchill Downs cards the Grade 3 $100,000 Dogwood at seven panels on the main track and Charles Town the $350,000 Grade 3 CT Oaks at the same distance.

Saturday's Pope Jude analysis will cover all these events and many of the undercard races surrounding them.
