2010 Kentucky Derby Contenders

Date: 04/27/2010


Here is the latest look at the list of top contenders for the 2010 Kentucky Derby to be run on May 1st at Churchill Downs. The prep races are pretty much over now and the horses who can make the field have been narrowed down by their graded earnings. There are still some question marks by a few of the top horses as to whether they will go or not and now there is even a filly that is under consideration. Entries will be taken on April 28 which will give the final answer to who will be in the 2010 Kentucky Derby field.

Below is my first list of contenders with their trainer, jockey, and dosage index. Be sure to click the link on each horse's name to view full info, stats, and a photo where available. Jockey assignments are based on who has been riding so far and can change drastically as we get farther into the Triple Crown preps. The Experimental Free Handicap was released on January 28, and there are 16 dual qualifiers this year. An asterisk (*) by the name in the list below indicates a dual qualifier. The early Triple Crown nominations, which cost $600, closed on January 16 with 366 nominations. Late nominations, which cost $6000, closed on March 27.

Note: Eskendereya is out as of 4/25 due to an injury.
