Derby Point Standings (04/11/16)

What is the road to the Kentucky Derby?

Each year, there are more than 20,000 thoroughbred racehorses foaled (born). Of those, owners and breeders of fewer than 500 horses, pay a nominal fee of $600 to have their horse "Derby" Eligible. This does not guarantee your horse will run on the first Saturday of May, rather it gets you the right should your horse be good enough to compete.

The Road to the Kentucky Derby is a 35-race series that awards points to the Top 4 finishers in each race. The Top 20 point earners will earn a spot in the starting gate for the 142nd running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7, 2016.

Here are the Top 10 horses in the point standings.
