Among the 2022 Kentucky Derby runners, winner Rich Strike leads a group of four Derby entrants who are probable for the Belmont Stakes on June 11. Fifth-place finisher Mo Donegal and sixth-place Barber Road are also probable. Ethereal Road, who scratched from the Kentucky Derby but won the Sir Barton on the Preakness undercard, is also probable for the Test of the Champion.

From the 2021 Kentucky Derby field, a trio of horses are in action this week. Hidden Stash dropped to allowance company for a Friday outing at Churchill Downs and finished a late-running third after taking an awkward step early. On Saturday, Super Stock tries to get back on track in the Blame Stakes and Like the King sticks to the grass in the Arlington (G3).
