I will withhold judgement for now, however, I think 2YO racing should have some bearing on the KY Derby. You could win the Del Mar Futurity & BC Juvie (both Gr. I races), finish fourth and sixth in a couple of Derby preps and get left out of the gate.
Also, you will never see a filly win the Derby again, as long as this system stands.
I applaud the efforts to change, because we have to, but I'm not sold on this just yet.
