Now that the seemingly endless Kentucky Derby prep season is but a distant memory and the Triple Crown trail has reached its usual unsatisfying terminus, we can finally look beyond the three-year-olds and enjoy the full breadth that thoroughbred racing has to offer over these next eighteen weeks, leading to the Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs on November 4th and 5th.

July starts things off in a big way with 52 graded stakes races worth over $13 million, culminating with the $1,000,000 Haskell Stakes (G1) at Monmouth Park on July 31st.  July also brings us two of racing’s most anticipated Opening Day’s – the boutique meets at Del Mar and Saratoga Race Course. 

July Graded Stakes Highlights:

  • 14 Grade 1’s worth $5,800,000
  • 20 Grade 2’s worth $5,125,000
  • 22 graded turf races worth $5,625,000
