2020 Road to the Kentucky Derby and Oaks Points

Updated: 3/23/2020

The Kentucky Derby is on September 5, 2020 (rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic), and the contenders earn points in selected 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. Since 2013, a new points system called the "Road to the Kentucky Derby" where a specific series of 35 prep races each worth a specific amount of points has decided which horses get in the Derby. A similar system is also in place for the Kentucky Oaks run on September 4, but fillies who want in the Derby will have to compete in with the colts for Derby points. While Derby points earned by fillies will also count toward the Oaks, Oaks points will not count towards the Derby.

Below is a list of horses in order of points earned for both the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks as of March 23, 2020. Also included for comparison are their earnings in non-restricted stakes races which also serve as a tie-breaker. There are also a separate Japan Road to the Derby and European Road to the Derby which guarantee a spot to one horse from Japan and one horse from Europe, if they opt to come for the Kentucky Derby. Results and schedule for the Road to the Derby races.
