The New York Racing Association has listed runners invited for the second legs of its new Turf Trinity and Turf Tiara series.

They include 3 invitees which are Aiken Training Track graduates: HENLEY’S JOY, EONS and CONCRETE ROSE.

Fourteen 3-year-old colts were invited for the $1 million Saratoga Derby on Aug. 4, including Belmont Derby Invitational champ Henley’s Joy.

The Mike Maker trainee won that Belmont Park feature July 6 ahead of Social Paranoia and Rockemperor, both of whom are also invited.

The Saratoga Derby goes 1 3/16 miles over Saratoga’s turf and is part of a Sunday card that also includes the $200,000 Adirondack Stakes (G2) and the $200,000 Fasig-Tipton Waya Stakes (G3).

Eleven 3-year-old fillies are listed as invitees for the $750,000 Saratoga Oaks on Aug. 2, with the field highlighted by Belmont Oaks Invitational heroine Concrete Rose.

Just Wonderful, who finished second behind the Rusty Arnold trainee July 6 at Belmont Park, isn’t on the invitees list, but third-place finisher Cambier Parc is.

The Saratoga Oaks runs 1 3/16 miles over the turf as the feature of a Friday card that also includes the $200,000 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame (G2) and the $100,000 Alydar Stakes.
