Road To The Kentucky Derby Races and Points

 


.

 

 

Beginning in 2013, horses will qualify for entry in the Kentucky Derby based on a new point system. The races and points structure are listed below.

No qualifying races are shorter than 1 mile. Also, fillies must qualify in the same races as males if they are pointing for the Kentucky Derby. There is a separate point system for the Kentucky Oaks.

Graded earnings will be used as a tiebreaker. See The Points vs Graded Earnings leaders side-by-side here!
