History:  The El Camino Real Derby is one of the few Kentucky Derby prep races still run on a synthetic surface, specifically the Tapeta track at Golden Gate Fields. The race was first run in 1982 and for many years was held at Bay Meadows Racetrack until its closure in 2008. After making the switch to Golden Gate and thus transitioning to a synthetic surface, the race’s Derby relevance has diminished greatly in recent years (in fact, it lost its graded status in 2018), but there have been many prominent winners in its history that have gone on to Classic success. Chief among the list of notable winners is Tabasco Cat, who took the El Camino Real Derby in 1994 and would go on to win the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Tank’s Prospect (1985) and Snow Chief (1986) won the Preakness, too, while the latter was named Champion 3-Year-Old that same year.
