2008 Triple Crown Late Nominations

Date: 04/01/2008

It is just over a month before the Kentucky Derby and this year the contenders seem to be sorting themselves out better than most. The final nomination period closed with only 11 addtional nominees at a cost of $6000 each. The biggest surprise on the list would have to be the two fillies, Eight Belles and Proud Spell.

The late nomination period is the last chance to get your horse eligible to enter the Kentucky Derby for a reasonable cost. The early nominations, which closed in January, cost $600 and the late nominations, which closed on March 29, cost $6000. At this point, horses can still be supplemented to the Kentucky Derby for a $150,000 fee, or for the Preakness and/or Belmont for "only" $100,000. Entries to the Kentucky Derby are capped at 20 horses and if more than 20 enter, preference is given in order of their amount of graded stakes earnings. Additional fees are $15,000 to enter and $15,000 to start are due if you actually get in. There are no also eligibles taken for the Triple Crown races.
