2005 Kentucky Derby Contenders


Churchill Downs Twin Spires

Churchill Downs on Derby Day.

Cindy Pierson Dulay
Updated May 05, 2005

All of the major preps are now history and the list of top Triple Crown contenders is starting to settle out. The Kentucky Derby on May 7th is now less than two weeks away so everyone will have to start committing and settling their jockey assignments. Many contenders have already fallen by the wayside and new faces have come to the forefront, so keep checking back as I will be making updated every day or two now.

All nominations are now closed and only one supplemental entry, Greeley's Galaxy, is expected. The Experimental Free Handicap is also out so the dual qualifiers are set and are indicated by a star next to the horse's dosage index.

Click the horse's name to see a profile with lots of information, stats, and a photo where available. Jockeys are based on who is currently riding the horse, so expect changes there as well. Horses have now been put in order of their Graded Stakes earnings and off the trail horses are on a separate page.
