For the unprecedented move to September, we have a lot to think about as the field today looks much different than the beginning of the Road to the Kentucky Derby a year ago!
Let TwinSpires introduce you to the probable contenders for the First Saturday in September!
2020 Kentucky Derby contenders offer a wide array of unique stories, robust family history, new as well as seasoned connections and veterans.
In Meet the Kentucky Derby Contenders you will find the pedigree and family legacy of each contender, plus a rating to help gauge their prowess to win the Kentucky Derby, which is a 1 1/4 mile contest.
At the end of each page, there is listed a Pro and Con for each horse that can help in your handicapping, in addition to a five-cross pedigree box, similar to what we mind find in ancestry lineages.
Finally, we include a detailed story on the contenders and their family. What has their sire (father) and dam (mother) accomplished? Are there any Kentucky Derby winners present in their pedigree or can their family comfortably run the distance of the Kentucky Derby? Is the run style a factor? Will they be near the front of the pack?
