2010 Kentucky Derby Entries


The Twin Spires at Churchill Downs

Churchill Downs home of the Kentucky Derby

Updated April 28, 2010

A full field of 20 three-year-olds made final entry for the 136th running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby (G1) Presented by Yum! Brands, contested on Saturday at 1 1/4 miles at Churchill Downs. 22 horses went into the entry box Wednesday morning but two were excluded by graded stakes earnings, Setsuko and Pleasant Prince. As well, two horses originally intended to go in, Interactif and Endorsement, were not entered. Interactif will instead stay on the turf and will contest the American Turf (G3) on Friday, while Endorsement suffered a lateral condylar fracture in his right front ankle during a workout this morning. He will have surgery on Thursday and is expected to be out 3-4 months.

John Asher hosted the proceedings at the Secretariat Lounge in the clubhouse at noon, with racing secretary Ben Huffman drawing the entry sheets and assistant secretary Dan Bourque drawing the numbers. Asher pointed out that Huffman shuffled the entry sheets, a reference to recent years when this step was forgotten and the names came out in alphabetical order. The "draft draw" was abolished this year and the draw was instead conducted in the traditional double blind method.

Lookin at Lucky, an unlucky third in a troubled trip in the Santa Anita Derby, will break from the rail under jockey Garrett Gomez for trainer Bob Baffert as the 3-1 favorite on the morning line announced by handicapper Mike Battaglia, and will race with blinkers off. Santa Anita Derby winner Sidney's Candy is the 5-1 second choice, but he drew the far outside post 20 for trainer John Sadler and jockey Joe Talamo. Three horses are tied at 10-1 third choice, Ice Box in post 2, filly Devil May Care in post 11 and adds blinkers, and Awesome Act in post 16.

The Kentucky Derby will be televised on NBC from 4-7:00pm EDT but you can watch most of the Derby card on ESPN from 1-5:00pm. Both networks will broadcast in HD this year. Free past performances for the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks are available from Daily Racing Form. The Kentucky Derby goes off at 6:24pm ET, carded as Race 11 of a 13-race card on Saturday May 1st.
