Pa. Derby, Cotillion Stakes set for Parx on Saturday
Parx Racing in Bensalem will host the $1 million Grade II Pennsylvania Derby and the $1 million Grade I Cotillion Stakes on Saturday.
The two races will feature some of the best 3-year-old colts and fillies.
Will Take Charge and Moreno, the horse that almost won the Travers, will square off in the Derby.
Close Hatches and Sweet Lulu, two Grade 1-winning fillies, will compete in the Cotillion.
The undercard is topped by the $300,000 Grade III Gallant Bob Stakes, a six-furlong sprint that has drawn a full field of 14 3-year-olds. The 5-2 morning line favorite was Rainbow Heir.
