A full field of 14 horses plus one also-eligible passed the entry box Wednesday morning for Saturday’s 89th running of the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1) at Keeneland.  The 1 1/8-mile Toyota Blue Grass serves as a major steppingstone for the $2 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1). The race offers 170 points toward qualification to this year’s race with 100 points going to the winner, a total that would ensure a spot in the Churchill Downs starting gate.
