HorseCenter: Saudi Cup preview, Kentucky Derby doings

In this week's edition of HorseCenter, co-hosts Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman preview the inaugural $20 million Saudi Cup, and look back at all the latest movers on the 2020 Kentucky Derby trail.

America's Saudi Cup contenders -- Maximum Security, Midnight Bisou, McKinzie, Mucho Gusto and Tacitus -- arrived Wednesday in Saudi Arabia for their Feb. 29 race. And which international contenders are the top threats?

As for the Derby trail, Modernist and Mr. Monomoy racked up 50 Derby qualifying points apiece in the split divisions of the Risen Star Stakes (G2) at Fair Grounds. Meanwhile at Oaklawn Park, Silver Prospector scored in the Southwest Stakes (G3).

Waiting to make an appearance on the Derby trail are Gouverneur Morris after his allowance win at Tampa Bay Downs and the speedy debut winner Charlatan.

As always, thanks for watching the show.
