Saturday marks the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Nineteen three-year-old horses will go to the post late in the day for the first leg of racing’s Triple Crown.
Originally, 20 horses were scheduled to run. But Friday morning, it was announced that Black Onyx had been scratched from the Derby and no other horse will run from his post position.
USAToday.com reported that this year, a points system based on horses’ performance in pre-Derby races dating back to late last year was used to determine the final list of competitors.
For the first time, preference to get into America’s most revered race was determined by a tiered points system comprising 36 races, with the emphasis on races at longer distances and later in the spring. Previously, it was based on who had the most earnings in graded-stakes races.
With such a large field, two trainers will continue a recent pattern of saddling multiple horses for the Derby. D. Wayne Lukas, a Hall of Fame trainer who has won the Derby four times, has two horses in the field. This year, he will enter Oxbow, winner of the Lecomte Stakes in January, and Will Take Charge, who won the Rebel Stakes in March.
