More Derby hopefuls will be back in action starting in March for more Championship Series races. Three of the next four are 1 1/16 mile tests with the $400,000 Fountain of Youth March 3 at Gulfstream the lone Derby prep that weekend. March 10 follows with the $350,000 Tampa Bay Derby, $400,000 San Felipe at Santa Anita and the 1 mile $400,000 Gotham at Aqueduct.
