The Road to the Kentucky Derby is a 34-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 Presented by Yum! Brands (Grade 1) on Saturday, May 7, 2016. Earnings in non-restricted stakes races serve as a tie-breaker. The Kentucky Derby field has been limited to 20 starters since 1975. At least 20 horses have entered the 1 1⁄4-mile race for 3-year-olds every year since 2004, and 15 of the last 17 years.

Below is the updated Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard following a meeting with Director of Racing Ben Huffman to discuss possible participants and an audit of points and non-restricted stakes earnings for both races.
