2024 Triple Crown Trail

Updated: 2/25/2024

It's that time of year again when the soon-to-be three-year-old Thoroughbreds start their campaign for the 2024 Kentucky Derby and dream of the elusive Triple Crown. Until mid-April, there will be a prep race somewhere most weekends from now on until the Kentucky Derby to be run on May 4.

Keep checking back with this list as I will post results and links to recaps or stakes histories for all the races weekly. Only races which earn points toward getting in the Kentucky Derby field are included. Since trainer Bob Baffert is suspended from competing in the Kentucky Derby, none of his horses are eligible to earn points, unless they were transferred to new trainers by the January 31 deadline, after which time they can earn points and be eligible to run, however unlike the last 2 years, none of his horses were transferred out by their owners. You may also want to check the Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard since the points earned by contenders are what will determine who gets in the Kentucky Derby at entry time this year.
