2012 Dual Qualifiers for the Kentucky Derby


By Dick Downey

The Experimental Free Handicap (EFH) was released today, so it's time to take a look at the 2012 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.

Two horses with the requisite weight in the EFH this year don't qualify. Dullahan has a dosage index of 4.20, and Majestic City has a DI of 11.00.

So without further ado, here are this year's Dual Qualifiers. Some of them are not on the Derby Trail at this point, but most of them are.

Horse EFH Wt. Dosage Index
Hansen 126 3.50
Union Rags 126 2.14
Creative Cause 124 1.43
Wrote 121 1.08
Currency Swap 120 3.00
Liaison 120 3.00
Rousing Sermon 119 2.60
Gemologist 118 2.73
Secret Circle 118 2.53
Brother Francis 116 1.40
Drill 116 2.27
Sabercat 116 2.73
Trinniberg 116 3.00
