Leaderboard for qualifying points to the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Points are earned by the top four finishers in designated qualifying Kentucky Derby prep races listed above. The Kentucky Derby field is reserved for the top 20 point earners. Two positions in the Kentucky Derby starting gate – one from Japan and one from Europe – will be extended to the horse that accrues the most points in their respective series.
Placing a Kentucky Derby Future Wager gives you the opportunity to lock down horses that you think will be in the Kentucky Derby starting gate, but usually at a much better price than what you would see on Kentucky Derby Day because the field is still unknown.

On Saturday, September 5, 2020, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert saddled his record-tying sixth winner as Authentic shut down Tiz the Law in the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1).
Ridden by Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez, Authentic conquered the 1 1/4-mile classic at odds of 8-1 in a gate-to-wire score by 1 1/4 lengths in a final time of 2:00.61 – the fastest since Monarchos’ 1:59.97 in 2001.
It was Authentic’s second straight win following the Haskell Stakes (G1) and improved his overall record to 6-5-1-0, with his lone defeat coming in June’s 1 1/18-mile Santa Anita Derby (G1). The 3-year-old Into Mischief colt has now earned $2,871,200 for co-owners Spendthrift Farm, Madaket Stables, Starlight Racing, and MyRacehorse.com.
