Note: Gronkowski broke his maiden in his 3rd start as a 2-year-old at Chelmsford City. He made his 2018 debut winning an allowance at Newcastle, then won the Road to the Kentucky Derby Condition Stakes at Kempton Park, finally winning the 32red Burradon Stakes at Newcastle to get the top points in the European Road To The Kentucky Derby and a guaranteed spot in the field. Although he has only raced in England, he does have 4 wins over all-weather surfaces there.
Security even tighter - if you are going to the Derby or Oaks be sure to check here to find out what you can bring in with you. The enhanced security means no big cameras, camcorders, big purses, or coolers. Check here to make sure you don't bring anything they will confiscate. Also there will be no re-entry if you leave the track, so don't forget anything! 2018 is likely to be the same if not more restricted.
