Bluegrass Angus faces short field in Richmond Derby Trial


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The $50,000 Richmond Derby Trial at Hastings on Friday evening is the most important of the six stakes on the eight-race card that begins at 7:05 p.m. Pacific. It is the final local prep for the Grade 3, $200,000 British Columbia Derby on Sept. 13, and a win in the Trial would guarantee a spot in the 1 1/8-mile B.C. Derby, which usually has a full field of 12 horses.
