2014 Road to the Kentucky Derby Points List

By

Once again this year, entry in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs will be determined by a new points system called Road to the Kentucky Derby instead of the old graded stakes earnings system. Points will be earned in a series of 34 selected prep races to determine priority for horses wishing to be Kentucky Derby starters in an effort to make the selection order more fair. A similar system is also in place for the Kentucky Oaks, but fillies who want in the Derby will have to compete in with the colts for Derby points. While those Kentucky Derby points earned by fillies will also count toward the Kentucky Oaks, Kentucky Oaks points will not count towards the Kentucky Derby. You can read more about the system and see the list of prep races here.

Below is the leaderboard of horses in order of points earned for both the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks as of April 17, 2014. Also included for comparison are their earning in non-restricted stakes races which also serves as a tie-breaker when two horses have the same number of points. Horses who are not currently nominated to the Triple Crown or Kentucky Oaks have been removed from the leaderboard as have those who are sidelined due to injury or other reasons. It is a long time until the first Saturday in May, so anything can happen at this point and the Derby winner may not even be on the list yet.

TIEBREAKERS – If two or more horses have the same number of points, the tiebreaker is earnings in non-restricted stakes races.

FILLIES – If a filly wants to run in the Kentucky Derby she can, but she’ll have to earn her way into the field by accumulating points against open company just like the rest of the colts and geldings and be nominated to the Triple Crown. Additionally, any points earned by a filly in the “Road to the Kentucky Derby” series against open company will be credited to her point total in the “Road to the Kentucky Oaks” series.

DEAD-HEATS – In the event of a dead-heat (tie) in a “Road to the Kentucky Derby” race, those horses will divide equally the points they would have received jointly had one beaten the other.

SPLIT DIVISIONS – In the event a “Road to the Kentucky Derby” race is split into divisions and each division awards its originally published purse money, points will be awarded as scheduled for each division. If the originally published purse is halved for each division, points will be halved as well.
