A total of 17 Kentucky Derby qualifying points will be offered in Saturday’s $500,000 Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland. The 1 1/16-mile race will offer a “Win & You’re In” berth for the Nov. 5 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) at Del Mar.

Double Thunder is a contender for two-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher. Hero of the Bashford Manor (G3) at Churchill Downs this summer, the son of 2010 Kentucky Derby victor Super Saver colt exits a victory in the Sept. 5 Sapling S. at Monmouth Park. Paco Lopez retains the assignment aboard the gray colt.

Stellar Tap, who exits a fifth as the favorite in the Sept. 18 Iroquois S. (G3), rates as a rebound candidate for Steve Asmussen. Ricardo Santana Jr. will ride the gray Tapit colt. Asmussen is also responsible for Costa Terra, who was last seen finishing a close third as the favorite in the Ellis Park Juvenile S. Francisco Arrieta has the call.

Classic Causeway and Don’t Wait Up merit respect after sharp maiden wins at Saratoga. Great Escape exits a nice 2 1/4-length maiden triumph at Churchill Downs for Rodolphe Brisset, and Rattle N Roll romped by three lengths under the Twin Spires for Kenny McPeek.

Hopeful S. (G1) third-placer Kevin’s Folly is also part of a competitive 13-horse field, and American Sanctuary, King Curlin, Mac’s Time, Mr. Bouma, and Seal Beach round out the cast.
