 The Risen Star has proved to be a key race in recent memory.  Last year’s winner, War of Will went on to run a decent race in the Kentucky Derby and eventually won the Preakness Stakes.  This year there will be two Risen Star winner’s as the race has been split into two divisions.  Each winner will receive 50 points towards the Kentucky Derby which almost certainly guarantees a spot in the starting gate. Here’s a look at Saturday’s card.
