2015 Kentucky Derby Points System

Churchill’s Kentucky Derby Points Races

Updated 04/25/2015

KentuckyDerbyLogo2015_298Although I got started on this late, it is (past) time for the Kentucky Derby 141 Points page! This is the third year for the points system and so far this system hasn’t had many complaints. For those of you who might not be aware, Churchill Downs opted to move away from the 27 year old graded stakes earning criteria as its means of accepting Kentucky Derby entries and has adopted a points system on it’s place where the highest point earners get their shot at entering into this year’s Kentucky Derby. Be sure and bookmark this page and return here often as we continue to update the points standings as well as give video replay links for your handicapping efforts. This was a great tool for HHR leading up to last year’s Derby and I feel it will be just as useful again this season. We will keep this page updated throughout the season, adding winners of the races and a points breakdown as we get closer and closer to that first Saturday in May 2015. We will also try and grab the replays for you, so this page will be useful in your 2015 Kentucky Derby handicapping efforts.
