HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Tapiture has established himself as the top 3-year-old at Oaklawn Park, but when he runs Saturday in the meet’s richest offering, the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas Derby, he will have to stave off a number of points-hungry newcomers. Bayern, Commissioner, Conquest Titan, and Danza have shipped to town to chase the race’s 170 Kentucky Derby preference points, to be divided on a scale of 100-40-20-10.
