Road to the 2019 Kentucky Derby Standings

Posted by Evan Chronis on Sun, Apr 14, 2019 @ 08:00 AM

The Road to the 2019 Kentucky Derby® has come to a conclusion. Over the past eight months, horses from around the globe have competed for the right to enter the 145th 'Run for the Roses' on May 4. 

This racing series is broken up into the American, European and Japanese Roads, with us keeping you updated every step along the way. Points are distributed per race, with the top four horses earning points towards the leader board. As the road goes on, the point values get higher through the Kentucky Derby Championship Series and the stakes become greater. 

With less than a week until the start of the 145th Kentucky Derby and all of the prep races completed, let's take a look at the updated standings and who are the favorites heading into Churchill Downs®.Road to the 2019 Kentucky Derby
