The “Road to the Kentucky Derby” has just gotten a little more congested.

According to a source very close to the situation, the Fair Grounds’ Racing Office is expected to get 23 entries for the G2 Risen Star Stakes — which will be held in New Orleans on Saturday, Feb. 15 as part of the day’s “Louisiana Derby Preview Day.”

As a result, racing officials have decided to split the Stakes and major Kentucky Derby prep into two divisions.

The track has decided to keep the purse at $400,000 for both of the divisions. As a result, each one of the Derby preps will be worth 50 total points to the first leg of the 2020 Triple Crown.

Here are the Entries For the G2 Risen Star Stakes /
