Justify Triple Crown Gear

2006 Kentucky Derby Contenders
Graded Stakes Earnings

Updated: 04/27/2006

With the Kentucky Derby less than a month away, the list of possible entrants is starting to take shape. Since the Derby field is limited to 20 entrants, some of these contenders are not going to get in the race. Only the top 20 entrants based on graded stakes earnings can draw into the race, and there is no also eligible list for the Derby. With only a few more graded preps remaining, those low on the list will really have to perform well to make the cut.

Below is a list of Triple Crown nominees in order of their graded stakes earnings through April 22th. To make things easier to read, I have dropped out all the horses who are definitely not going to the Derby in addition to horses who are out on injury or retired or have far to few earnings to get in. The Lexington Stakes next Saturday is the last chance to get earnings to qualify.
