2013 Road to the Kentucky Derby Points

Updated: 04/20/2013

With the Kentucky Derby is only a week away, the contenders are almost finished earning points in the prep races across the country. Since the Derby field is limited to 20 entrants, there has to be a method for determining which of the many horses who want to enter can get in the race. In the past, graded stakes earnings were used to determine who will get in the field when entries are taken, but many people disliked this system since one good race as a 2-year-old could get a sub-par horse in over a more talented late bloomer. Starting in 2013, a new points system called the "Road to the Kentucky Derby" where a specific series of 36 prep races each worth a specific amount of points will decide which horses get in the Derby. A similar system is also in place for the Kentucky Oaks, but fillies who want in the Derby will have to compete in with the colts for Derby points. While those Derby points earned by fillies will also count toward the Oaks, Oaks points will not count towards the Derby. You can read more about the system and see the list of races here.

Below is a list of horses in order of points earned for both the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks as of April 10. Also included for comparison are their earning in non-restricted stakes races which also serve as a tie-breaker. Horses who are not currently nominated to the Triple Crown or Kentucky Oaks have been removed from the list as are those out due to injury or other reasons. There is only one race left for Oaks points and two more races left for Derby points, but they are only worth 20 points to the winners.
