2020 Triple Crown Trail


Country House, winner of the 2019 Kentucky Derby after the disqualification of Maximum Security

Updated: 6/07/2020

It's that time of year again when the soon-to-be three-year-old Thoroughbreds start their campaign for the 2020 Kentucky Derby and dream of the elusive Triple Crown. There will be a prep race somewhere most weekends from now on until the Kentucky Derby, which has been rescheduled for Saturday September 5, so additional scoring races were added by Churchill Downs officials, including the Belmont Stakes which for the first time will be the first leg of the Triple Crown rather than the finale.

Keep checking back with this list as I will post results and links to recaps or stakes histories for all the races weekly. Only races which earn points toward getting in the Kentucky Derby field are included. You may also want to check the Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard since the points earned by contenders are what will determine who gets in the Kentucky Derby at entry time this year.
