Thought I'd do a little bit on the upcoming Derby in FF. Look at the contenders, the stakes races, and speculate.  ;)

(The horses in these lists all have at least one stakes win. FF owned horses were not included. There may be some horses that aren't nominated on the list as the list of nominees is not up yet. Turf horses also may have been included in the list.)

Top 20 Contenders By Earnings:
1 Engaging (f) - $2,270,000 (3 SW)
2 Majestic (f)- $1,746,500 (5 SW)
3 Sleipnir (c) - $1,476,700 (6 SW)
4 Make A Bid (f) - $1,335,000 (8 SW)
5 Wildforthegirls (g) - $1,015,750 (4 SW)
6 Express Yourself (c) - $938,000(3 SW)
7 Make A Difference (f) - $679,750 (4 SW)
8 Devilady (f) - $677,800 (4 SW)
9 Touch 'N' Go (f) - $652,500 (3 SW)
10 Purely Platonic (c) - $622,550 (3 SW)
11 Mocktail (c) - $607,350 (1 SW)
