Here is the current top ten point earners on The Road To The Kentucky Derby, along with their trainers.
Don’t panic if you don’t see your Derby favorite listed here. Four weeks of prep races remain and the point-reward scale is increasing.
We are seven weeks removed from the Kentucky Derby. That means there is still time to garner points in order to gain entry into the Run For The Roses on May 1st.
This Saturday’s Louisiana Derby is the first of eight remaining prep races that award the highest points-payout; 100-40-20-10 to the top four finishers. Things are heating up.
