Updated 'Road to the Kentucky Derby' Point Standings

From Churchill Downs

Updated "Road to the Kentucky Derby" Point Standings following Monday's Southwest. The Bob Baffert-trained Super Ninety Nine easily won the 1 1/16-mile race by 11 ¼ lengths over "sloppy" going and collected 10 points to debut at No. 10 on the leaderboard.

The Southwest marked the conclusion of the "Kentucky Derby Prep Season" races with a 10-4-2-1 point distribution. The multi-leg "Kentucky Derby Championship Series" begins Saturday (Feb. 25) with the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream and Risen Star at Fair Grounds. Points to the Top 4 finishers will increase to 50 for first, 20 for second, 10 for third and 5 for fourth. 

HOW TO GET INTO THE KENTUCKY DERBY STARTING GATE – The "Road to the Kentucky Derby" is a 36-race series that awards points to the Top 4 finishers in each race. The Top 20 point earners nominated to the Triple Crown will earn a spot in the starting gate for the 139th running of the Grade I, $2 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands on Saturday, May 4. The Kentucky Derby field has been limited to 20 starters since 1975. At least 20 horses have entered the 1 ¼-mile race for 3-year-old Thoroughbreds every year since 2004, and 12 of the last 14 years.

* The Top 3 finishers in the El Camino Real Derby were not early Triple Crown nominees

 

NOT TRIPLE CROWN NOMINATED – Joha (10 points); Steeler-IRE (10), River Seven (10), Dice Flavor (10), Artigiano (4), Nina's Dragon (4), Indiano Jones (2), Al Waab-IRE (2), Counting Days (2), Hightail (1), Five Iron (1), Birdman-IRE (1), Archwarrior (1) & Stormy Holiday (1)

 

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.

 

SCHEDULE CHANGES – No changes to the 2013 schedule are planned at this time. Churchill Downs officials will review which races will be included in the "Road to the Kentucky Derby" series annually. Plans call for the schedule of races to be announced each July.

 

NOMINATIONS – Horses born in 2010 were made eligible to run in this year's Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown with a $600 early payment that was due Jan. 26, 2013. A late period for nominations at $6,000 each will close Saturday, March 23, 2013. In addition to the Triple Crown nomination fee, owners must pay $25,000 to enter the Derby by 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, and an additional $25,000 to start. If there are less than 24 Triple Crown nominees entered, a horse may be supplemented for $200,000.

 

POST POSITION DRAW – The Kentucky Derby Post Position Draw – a traditional "pill pull" in which horses' entry blanks are pulled simultaneously with a numbered pill to determine what stall a horse will break from the starting gate – will be held at Churchill Downs on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. ET (Live on NBC Sports Network). Up to 24 horses may enter the race and four horses can be listed as "also eligible" and would be ranked in order accordingly; they could draw into the field should any horse(s) be scratched before scratch time on Friday, May 3, 2013 at 9 a.m. ET.

 

PRIZE MONEY – The Kentucky Derby winner will receive a gold trophy plus an estimated $1.24 million payday. A total of $400,000 will be awarded to the runner-up, $200,000 to third, $100,000 to fourth and $60,000 to fifth.
