Kentucky Derby 2024 Entries

Who earns the right to run in the Derby? It's a tale of grit, talent, and sheer determination. The contenders are the crème de la crème of the horse racing world, each with a story, each with a dream. These equine athletes are trained by the best in the business, ensuring that when they arrive at the starting gate at Churchill Downs, they are nothing short of excellence personified.

The journey to the Kentucky Derby is packed with anticipation and excitement. It starts months in advance, with a series of prep races known as the "Road to the Kentucky Derby". This point system, implemented in 2013, replaced the old earnings-based system, resulting in a more fair and competitive environment. Each race has an individual value, and the stakes rise as the Derby approaches, making every stride and victory count.

The contenders are who make the Derby at its heart. These top 20 horses, who have shown themselves in the prep races, are more than simply athletes; they represent perseverance, speed, and the height of horse racing potential. Each year, a fresh crop of thoroughbreds make their mark on Derby history, competing not just for the winner's money but also for immortal glory.
