2003 Kentucky Derby Contenders

Updated: 04/30/2003



Here is our continuing list of the top contenders for this year's Kentucky Derby on May 3rd. The list is nearly finalized now with the Derby only a week away and entries set to draw on Wednesday, April 30th. The list is now organized into probable starters, undecided, and unlikely/off the trail. Expect some of the latter category to come back into play for the Preakness and/or Belmont, but they are not likely to enter the Derby. More info and profiles will probably come out over the next week with the final rush to the big day, so check back.

Be sure to click the link on each horse's name to view full info, stats, and a photo where available. A star next to the dosage index indicates a dual qualifier.
