TWO $1 MILLION DOLLAR RACES BACK ON THE SAME DAY FOR A FOURTH YEAR!

Local racing fans will want to circle September 19th, the Saturday that Parx will host its two premier races, the Grade 1 Cotillion Stakes and the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby. For the third consecutive year, the track will run its two million dollar races on the same day; a growing traditional that isn't likely to change anytime soon.

Now seemingly on the cusp of becoming a Grade 1 race, the PA Derby enjoyed a first in its history in 2014 when the reigning Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, California Chrome came to compete. Making his first start since his Triple Crown hopes were denied at Belmont Park, his connections chose Parx as his destination to start his fall campaign. Everyone's dreams of seeing a Kentucky Derby winner in the local winner's circle would not be realized, however, as the huge crowd saw Bob Baffert's Bayern lead gate to wire, giving the Hall of Fame trainer his first PA Derby victory. Bayern would then go on to win the $5 million Breeders Cup Classic six weeks later.

The 2014 Cotillion winner would not only also go on to win Breeders Cup Saturday but would also be a unanimous selection as the 3YO filly champion. Untapable finished off her sensational season with her Cotillion win here and then a victory in the Breeders Cup Distaff at Santa Anita. Earlier wins in the Kentucky Oaks and the Mother Goose gave her an incredible four Grade 1 wins for the year, a year that saw just one lone defeat, that against male rivals in the G1 Haskell at Monmouth Park.

Local broadcast coverage this year will once again be on ComcastSportsnet. In addition to the broadcast on race day, a special preview show has been added. The preview show will run from 6-6:30pm on Friday, September 18th while race day coverage will again be a 90 minute program that will start at 4:30pm on Saturday the 19th and will feature the G3 Gallant Bob Stakes, the G1 Cotillion Stakes and the G2 Pennsylvania Derby. It will all be hosted by Laffit Pincay III and Dick Jerardi with analysts Caton Bredar and Maggie Wolfendale providing additional insight.

Join Parx for another historic day of world class thoroughbred racing on its biggest day of the year, Saturday, September 19th. Watch the nation's three year-old stars make their final preparations for the Breeders Cup World Championships, held this year at Keeneland on October 30th & 31st. Gates open at 10am.
