Damaging hailstorms be damned, Arapahoe Park has planned heavy weekend cards of full fields and big races.

On Saturday, 89 horses vie in nine races that include the $30K CTBA Futurity and the $13K COBRA Oaks.

Sunday is even bigger, with the $100K Rocky Mountain Futurity and the $55K Rocky Mountain Derby for Quarter Horses, and the $40K Colorado Derby and CTBA Lassie Stakes for Thoroughbreds.

Eighty-five horses compete in nine races on Sunday.

First post both days is 1:00 p.m.
