Five Defections Alter Derby Points Chart
By Dick Downey
According to Churchill Downs, there were five official defections from the Kentucky Derby Sunday. Our Kentucky Derby points chart is updated accordingly.
On Sunday, the connections for Uncaptured, Merit Man and Departing confirmed that their horses are no longer under consideration for the Derby. Churchill Downs also removed Den's Legacy and West Hills Giant from their points Leaderboard.
Den's Legacy, sixth in the Grade I Arkansas Derby, did not fly to Kentucky as originally planned. Trainer Bob Baffert sent him back to his California base.
