Horses not nominated to the Triple Crown do not appear on the leader board for Kentucky Derby qualifying points. The deadline for late nominations to the 2013 Triple Crown is March 23, 2013. If any of the top three finishers from the El Camino Real Derby or other un-nominated points-holders are made eligible at that time by payment of the $6,000 fee, their points will be awarded retroactively, just as graded stakes earnings were in the previous eligibility system.
