The Grade III Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Saturday, January 23rd presents the best field of any Kentucky Derby prep run this year. Four of the nine entries have run in Grade I stakes prior to the Holy Bull Stakes. Homeboykris won the Grade I Champagne Stakes at Belmont in October while Aikenite, Piscetelli, and William's Kitten all ran in the Breeder's Cup Juvenile in November. Of the other five horses in the field, only Winslow Homer hasn't run in stakes company prior to the Holy Bull Stakes.
