Point system is so wired . About one month ago neither one of these horses were even known by those who were paying attention to pre Derby races .
I just think the distance of 1 1/16 is not a way to go
These races won't matter until they start running 1 1/8 
At least that would indicate who can go for Triple crown races

Tapwrit destroyed the field in the Tampa Bay Derby, on a course that produced a track record at the distance earlier in the card, he could be any kind

Where's ZAKAROFF won the EL CAMINO 2/18/2017 100. dollar horse 10 points?
AlexLuque19 26 days ago
First have to pay the $6000 nomination fee to the Kentucky derby... then he can be a contender and get the 10 points. March 20 is due date for late nominations

It not about money anymor,e it's about points.  Thank god.  We had years of horses racing a few big races and amassing money running a stressful, important race with no experience.
