Big weekend of racing

This weekend is a big one for Kentucky Derby prep races. One of the big races in the Santa Anita Derby on Saturday in California.

Colonel John is slated to run in Saturday's race for trainer Eoin Harty. Colonel John has won three times and finsihed second twice.

Colonel John won the Sham Stakes earlier this year and hopes for a repeat effort on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, the talented War Pass will try to rebound from a poor showing in the Tampa Bay Derby by trying to win the Wood Memorial.

War Pass won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year and was expected to roll in the Tampa Bay Derby, but a poor showing left that in doubt.

War Pass is super talented and if he can return to form, he will be tough to beat.
