Note: Runaway Ghost broke his maiden in his second start at Santa Anita then won the Golden Nugget Stakes at Golden Gate but finished 5th in the Los Alamitos Cash Call Futurity (G1). He made his 2018 debut winning the Riley Allison Stakes at Sunland Park, then finished 2nd in the Mine That Bird Stakes and won the Sunland Derby (G3). He came out of a work on April 14 with a shin injury that will keep him out of the Derby.
Security even tighter - if you are going to the Derby or Oaks be sure to check here to find out what you can bring in with you. The enhanced security means no big cameras, camcorders, big purses, or coolers. Check here to make sure you don't bring anything they will confiscate. Also there will be no re-entry if you leave the track, so don't forget anything! 2018 is likely to be the same if not more restricted.
