Because of the overwhelming interest in this step to the Kentucky Derby, both divisions carried the same number of points and the purses were divided equally from the original $1,000,000, each with a $500,000 purse. It’s a wonderful feeling to see Arkansas and Oaklawn play such a large role in thoroughbred racing and the Kentucky Derby to accommodate the three year olds vieing for entry into the first leg of the triple crown.
