It's never too early to talk about the Kentucky Derby each year. Horses qualify for the Kentucky Derby by earning points in select graded stakes races around the world. Graded earnings dollars are used in the event of a tiebreaker. Churchill Downs has also now partnered with the Japan Racing Association (JRA) to create another road Road to the Kentucky Derby running right through Japan. This particular series includes two one-mile graded dirt stakes at the Tokyo Racecourse, the Cattleya Sho for 2-year-olds and the Hyacinth for 3-year-olds. And of course fillies must qualify in the same races as males if they are pointing for the Kentucky Derby. It does not happen often, but from time to time we do see a filly compete with the boys and it is magnificent!
