Horse Racing, Kentucky Derby at The Downey Profile®

Dual Qualifiers Abound in Experimental Free Handicap


The Experimental Free Handicap (EFH) was released today, so it's time to take a look at the Dual Qualifiers for the Kentucky Derby.

To qualify, a 3-year-old must be ranked within 10 pounds of the highweight in the EFH and have a dosage index of 4.00 or less.

Only one male with the requisite weight in the EFH this year doesn't qualify. Capo Bastone has a dosage index of 4.33.

So without further ado, here are this year's male Dual Qualifiers. Some of them are not on the Derby Trail at this point, but most of them are. Spurious Precision was euthanized last September after he was injured. There are no known fillies on the Derby Trail at this time.
