1999 Kentucky Derby Entries

Dateline: 4/28/99

Entries were drawn today for the 125th Kentucky Derby. A full field of 20, including two fillies, will contest this year's running. Two horses were eliminated from the field on the basis of earnings, Etbauer and Torrid Sand.

Here you will find photos of and links to info about each horse entered. They are listed in program number order with actual post positions indicated. Past performances are available from the Daily Racing Form here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. More Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown info can be found on my page of  Triple Crown 1999 links and I also have a TV coverage schedule available or you can watch online from Broadcast.com.
