Borderland Derby

Borderland Derby

The Borderland Derby is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually in mid February at Sunland Park Racetrack in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The final local prep for April's WinStar Derby, and an official prep race for the Kentucky Derby, the Borderland Derby is open to three-year-olds willing to race one and one-sixteenth miles on the dirt. The ungraded stakes currently offers a purse of $100,000.

Run at a distance of one mile in 2003 and 2004, the race is named for its location. Sunland Park is situated close to the border between the states of New Mexico and Texas.

Since 2001, trainer Steve Asmussen has won the Borderland Derby four of the seven years.
