The Gotham Stakes is a key stepping stone. To where is the big question. The Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve? The Wood Memorial Stakes? The Pat Day Mile? At a one-turn mile, the Grade 3 Gotham is the kind of race that portends a horse’s future in sprints or two-turn races for connections who are not necessarily convinced that they have a Triple Crown candidate on their hands.
In case they do, the field of eight in Saturday’s renewal will be vying for 50-20-10-5 Kentucky Derby qualifying points distributed to the top four finishers.
However, this rich history hasn’t translated to success for Gotham participants on the first Saturday in May. Gotham winners Native Dancer, General Assembly (1979), Easy Goer, and Aptitude (2000) all finished second in the Kentucky Derby, but other highlights have been few and far between. During the 40-year period from 1980 through 2019, just two Gotham starters managed to hit the board at Churchill Downs.

But perhaps the Gotham is due for a renaissance. The race has offered 50 Kentucky Derby qualification points to the winner since 2013, and with this lofty prize in tow, a string of high-profile winners could be just around the corner.
