Catch Kentucky's final Derby prep on Saturday with the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland. The race looks to draw a full field of 14 colts looking for the winner's share of the 160 points up for grabs, which will assure them a spot in the gate on the first Saturday in May. You can catch all of the action starting at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1. Be sure to stop by the America's Best Racing homepage (www.americasbestracing.net) for a live Toyota Blue Grass Stakes webcast from 4-6:30 p.m. that will be hosted by Joe Kristufek, the face of ABR's "Racing 101" and a self-proclaimed horse racing ambassador.

Jen Ferguson

Jen Ferguson is an artist whose interest in depicting racehorses and track life goes back to early childhood, when she was obsessed with drawing horses and jockeys out of Blood-Horse magazines she got from her uncle, who owned and raced Thoroughbreds. In fact, her first childhood drawings were of racehorses.

In 2009, she published a book of drawings and stories based on expeditions to Aqueduct titled “Railbirds: My Life at the Track.” Jen spent last August working on drawings at Saratoga Race Course and plans to return for the 2013 meet. She currently works in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she draws regularly at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. If you see her sketching at the track, say hello!

More of Jen’s work plus her racetrack sketchbook in progress can be seen at jenferguson.com
