UPDATED ON MARCH 30 at 3:00 p.m. EDT:

This Derby Trail Tracker will monitor and list all of the 2017 Kentucky Derby contenders and where they will be running next and future “target” races. Each race along the Derby trail with Derby points is listed and the potential runners are categorized as follows:

  • Probable – connections (trainer / owner) have said that they are planning to run their horse in this race
  • Possible – connections (trainer / owner) have named this race as a possible place that their horse may run
  • Target – connections have said that this race is the long-term plan for their horse
