Old Forester Mint Julep Preview: Stacked Field Set for Showdown

With the New York Racing Association (NYRA) circuit not resuming live racing until early June, several top trainers were left with limited options, causing a strong attraction to this 1 1/16-mile turf route. Chad Brown, Brendan Walsh, Graham Motion, and Brad Cox each entered a pair of their respective trainees.

In all, a total of eight graded stakes winners are slated to enter the gate: Juliet FoxtrotBeau RecallLa SignareNay Lady NaySecret MessageVarenkaElizabeth Way, and Mitchell Road.
