The Derby Trail Tracker monitors and lists the 2019 Kentucky Derby contenders and where they will be running next. Updated by Saratoga Slim, the races along the Derby trail that award Kentucky Derby points (and a couple of important preps without points) are listed, and the potential runners (with trainer last names in parentheses) are categorized as follows:

·         Probable: connections (trainer / owner) have said 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

·         Speculative: based on quotes from connections and past trainer trends, these are educated guesses on where the horse may run on the Derby Trail
