Kentucky Derby 2014 Points Series

 

Follow the Road to the Kentucky Derby here! In 2014, horses will once again qualify for the Kentucky Derby by earning points in selected graded stakes races. Graded earnings will be used as a tiebreaker.

What the Nation is saying about Kentucky Derby 2014 Points Series...

where can i find the graded earings for the preps?
Makes good horses stay behind while One-hit-wonders take their place

  • Exterminator · Buds, I wrote that comment when it was unsure whether they'd make the Derby. They could still be knocked off if Uncle Sigh or another horse with more than 14 points wins the Lexington. · 11 days ago ·

Last year Churchill ran the Derby Trial, a qualifying/wildcard type race held a week before Derby. I guess they did away with that because I don't remember any contenders running in the Lexington or the Trial.

MAKE IT 4 IN 14 CALVIN!!!NOW THE TIME IS RIGHT TO RELEASE THE TITAN.
STRONG MANDATE will win the Rebel
All points race updated - the last leg is upon us!
The field is taking shape and where are all the heavy hitters? I don’t know how to start a blog, so this is as close as it comes. Lets look at the points and try and come up with a starting field of 20 for the first Saturday in May. Lets start by drawing a line at 35 points. 35 and up is in the starting gate. 1)Samraat (60 pts) A good horse that I think has beat the weakest of areas to earn his points, I also am not sure he has the class nor the stamina to go 10F in a G1 and hit the board, let alone win. (TOSS) 2)Intense Holiday (53 pts) Another horse that has beaten a weak field to gain 50 points, nice close in the risen star but I think a horse more suited to :45 half mile might be leading, not Albano. I also have stamina questions on this one. (TOSS) 3) Wildcat Red (50 pts) I think this horse has a bright future… In G2 Sprints. Nice horse again I question the class and stamina. I see him maybe 3rd or 4th in the Florida Derby behind Cairo Prince , Tiop Billing and General A Rod. (That being said TOSS) 4) California Chrome (50 pts). Is it Quality Road or Bodimister? Nice San Filipe. Lets see if he can go a little further (Farther Mary?) Class? Stamina? Im going no on both. He certainly has speed, Im thinking he will garnish lots of money on Derby day, (Possibly hits the board) 5) Ring Weekend (50 pts)- seem to like the dirt, deems to like the distance. A little more speed would be nice. Cant wait to see how he does with a little more ground against a grade A like Cairo Prince, Id keep my eye on this one(KEEPER). These need a few more points to get in 6) Midnight Hawk (32 pts) Pretty good speed but another horse that has questions with the distance. He only needs 4th or better in the Santa Anita Derby to make it, that’s about where I have him, behind Candy Boy, Cali Chrome, Baynern and maybe even with Kristo. (TOSS) 7) Albano (24 pts)- Nice pop in speed figure for Risen Star, Im not sure he can keep getting faster as the distance gets longer. I don’t think he is talented enough to make the field, luckily it looks like the Loiusanna derby might be the weakest of the big preps, so anything could happen. Im guessing we might see some “must win” horses like Top Billing, Conquest Titan, etc defect the tough Florida Derby and head to the LD. (TOSS- wont make field) 8) Uncle Sigh-(24 pts) (See Samraat) again all he needs is a top 3 or 4 in the Wood to make the derby but with the softness of that prep expect some others to make a trip to NY to get some easier points (TOSS-wont make field) 9) Tapiture (22 pts) Lets see, he has speed, class, and stamina. He also has 2 more tries to earn some more points, if he doesn’t get them in the Rebel, he will get them in the Ark. Seems to be the toughest path to the Derby this year, but he can handle it. (KEEPER) 10) Vicars in Trouble (20 pts) As the races are getting longer, he is getting slower. Nuff said. (TOSS-wont make field) 11) General A Rod-(20 pts) As the races are getting longer he is getting faster. Nuff said. This one may try and find a softer prep race than the Florida Derby. (Possibly hits the board) 12)Vinceramos- (20 pts) Seems to be able to handle the distance, and has placed or won both stakes attempts, so class is there, hmm where is the speed. Nice horse but I don’t think he will make it (TOSS) Those that need lots of points. 13) Honor Code (14pts) 2 more trys to get some point for possibly the best horse. (KEEPER) 14) Cairo Prince (14 pts) 1 more try to get some points! Don’t “F” it up! (KEEPER) 15) Tamarando (12 pts) Im actually surprised this horse has done this well, On paper he doesn’t have stamina, speed, or class, but he does well on the track. I do think he makes it as the top of the synthetic class, with both the Spiral and the Blue Grass on the horizon. I think he get in but (TOSS) 16) Bond Holder (11 pts) Another horse that I think could do well at 10 furlongs but I don’t think he will make it and if he does he is too
If anyone is interested, I run a Pick 6 racing game that mirrors the derby point series. It covers races from legs 1 and 2 and starts Feb 22nd. You have 15 picks to spread across 6 races each weekend. Most correct picks wins, its fun and free to play. http://games.scaredycatfilms.com/pick6/index.php
Really like the point system CD got this one right.
Sure ruins the way the Derby contest is run now.
