Following three official prep races on Saturday along the Roads to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, Churchill Downs announced updated leader boards to include the new points-earners.

The Grade 2 Jerome Stakes at Aqueduct, the first 3-year-old race of the year on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, afforded its winner, Treadway Racing Stable's Noble Moon, with ten points to hit the board for the first time. Noble Moon enters into a five-way points tie for fifth place with Cleburne, the Ontario-bred Ami's Holiday, the Ramseys' We Miss Artie and Delta Jackpot-winner Rise Up.

In fourth place is FrontRunner Stakes-winner Bond Holder with 11 points and Ron Winchell's Tapiture is in third place with 12 points. Tied for first place on the leaderboard is Remsen Stakes-winner Honor Code, behind in earnings to Breeders' Cup Juvenile runner-up Havana, with 14 points each.

The Jerome Stakes also gave runner-up Classic Giacnroll four points, third-place finisher Scotland two and fourth-place runner Matuszak one point.

Saturday's two prep races for the Kentucky Oaks gave out ten points each to Awesome Baby, the winner of the Santa Ynez at Santa Anita, and Fierce Boots, who captured the Busanda at Gulfstream.

Winner of Aqueduct's Demoiselle and Tempted Stakes, Stopchargingmaria still tops the leaderboard with 12 points, ahead of Ria Antonia, My Conquestadory, Artemis Agrotera,  Tepin, Untapable, Madly Truly and Vexed, all with ten points.

      4Bell, as a non-renowned art critic i must vehemently disagree with your scathing critique – pure UGLY. Although invisible to the naked eye the simplistic approach contains an iota of stunning brilliance, one that has inspired me to such a degree that a new literary term now resides in my oxymoron genre. The logo contains a “necessary oversight”. I would like to personally thank the artist for his non-use of the phrase “Presented by Yum! Brands”.

    This (point) thing isn’t gaining traction among core race fans, even CD must wonder if they’ve created a solution fo a problem that didn’t exist. Yes, the graphic is poor and comes in a year where the Preakness is particularly hanssome.
