Supplemental nomination fee for the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes: Supplemental fees were altered for 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic. Before that happened, the cost is $200,000 for those not early- or late-nominated to the Triple Crown, to be paid at the time of entry to the Kentucky Derby. Supplemental fees to the Kentucky Derby are added to purse money unless the horse is excluded, causing a return of the fee. After the running of the Kentucky Derby, the supplemental fee to nominate to the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes is $150,000; and after the Preakness the supplemental fee to nominate to the Belmont Stakes is $50,000.
