horse racing kentucky derby2020 Kentucky Derby Contenders

Updated: 1/06/2020

Here my first look at the list of top contenders for the 2020 Kentucky Derby to be run on May 2nd at Churchill Downs. Most of the points-scoring races have yet to be run, so the field is wide open at this point.

Entries for the Kentucky Derby will close and post positions will be drawn on Tuesday April 28.

Below is a list of top contenders with their trainer, jockey, and dosage index. The Experimental Free Handicap was discontinued this year, so there are no more dual qualifiers. Each horse names links to a profile with lots of info and a photo. Jockey assignments are based on who has been riding each horse and will change as jockeys make commitments now. The early Triple Crown nominations, which cost $600, closed in January with 369 horses, and only 4 late nominations, which cost $6000, were made on April 1. That was the last chance to be eligible without a high supplement fee, but with rule changes a couple of years ago. late supplements will have the same priority as the nominees if anyone wants to pay the $200,000 fee.
