Kafwain, Sky Mesa Among 135 to Nominate Early to Illinois Derby

STICKNEY, IL -- Today Racing Secretary Gary Duch and Stakes Coordinator Deborah Lindsay released the nomination list for the Illinois Derby. The Grade 2, $500,000 event shifts to Hawthorne Race Course in 2003 to be run on Saturday April 5.

In 2002, War Emblem used the Illinois Derby as a final stepping-stone on his way to wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, grabbing Eclipse Award honors as Champion three-year-old.

A total of 135 horses have been nominated early for the one-mile and one-eighth race, with late nominations closing on March 19. Among those nominated early to the Illinois Derby is multiple stakes winner Kafwain. Trained by Bob Baffert, Kafwain comes off a win in the Grade 2 San Vicente Stakes. Lightly raced and undefeated Sky Mesa has also been nominated, as has Santa Catalina winner Domestic Dispute.

A full listing (includes late nominees) of Illinois Derby nominations is below:
