2018 European and Japanese Derby road

Two invitations to compete in the Kentucky Derby – one from Japan and one from Europe – will be extended to a horse from their respective series with preference given to the horses that accrue the most points in their sequence. No invitation will be extended beyond the Top 4 point earners but if a horse also qualifies through America's 36-race “Road to the Kentucky Derby” series, the invite will be extended to the next eligible horse. If two or more horses have the same number of points, the tiebreakers are earnings in non-restricted stakes races followed by lifetime earnings. Should an invitation be declined by the Top 4 in either division, the next horse on America's “Road to the Kentucky Derby” preference list can assume the position in the starting gate.

  • Roaring Lion's trainer is considering the BC Juvenile for the colt since today's Royal Lodge was a BC win/in race as well as a Derby points race. Lion is a US bred horse, sired by Kitten's Joy.

    As far as I can tell, today's points race at Kempton Park... along with all other races there... has been snowed out.
  • whoodlerwhoodler Member
    Thanks!
    Finally, a twit that is of some use!
    Funny thing, the Patton was originally scheduled for the 9th.
