Note: Date, Track and Qualifying Points are based on the Road to the 2021 Kentucky Derby schedule

When:  April 4, 2021

Where:  Santa Anita Park (Arcadia, CA)

Purse: $1,000,000

Race Distance: 1 1/8 mile

History:  Most will agree that this is by far the biggest race on the West coast in the run up to any Kentucky Derby. Currently scheduled four weeks out from the big race itself, the Santa Anita Derby offers 100 points in the Road and thus assures the victor of a spot at the Run for the Roses. Three other Derby Prep races take place at Santa Anita Park but this is the most prestigious and offers the biggest purse.

For three years (2008-2010) the race did not take place on dirt, rather a Cushion Track and Pro-Ride artificial surfaces. Come 2011 however it returned to the standard dirt surface that is preeminent across US Horse Race Tracks.

Bob Baffert has trained no fewer than nine winning horses at the race with Gary Stevens holding the record of the same number when it comes to jockey victories.

This race was one of those affected by the Covid-19 outbreak and was postponed. It may well still happen later in the summer of 2020 if and when Horse Racing venues are deemed safe.
