Kentucky Derby Points Standings Modernist

Over the last seven years, the Kentucky Derby points standings cutoff for the 20 horses trying to qualify for the Kentucky Derby was between 21 and 30 points. Modernist has 50. However, last year, Bodexpress barely made the field of 20 even though he had accumulated 40 points.

This year, industry experts are expecting another competitive qualification process, which is why we decided to take a look at where the horses trying to qualify for the 2020 Kentucky Derby currently stand.

Expected to qualify:

Mr. Monomoy, 52 points

He is coming off a win at Saturday’s Risen Star, which gave him over 50 qualification points, which should be enough based on historical data.

Enforceable, 33 points

In the past, 30 points would be enough to guarantee a spot in the Kentucky Derby, but after last year, it doesn’t look like it will be enough. Finished second at the Risen Star after winning the Lecomonte in January. He should earn enough points to qualify for the Derby with a good performance at next month’s Louisiana Derby.

Storm the Court, 22 points

He followed up a win at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile with a disappointing fourth place finish at San Vincente.

Tiz the Law, 22 points

He is considered one of the dark horses to win the Kentucky Derby if he qualifies. Also, he won his first two races before finishing third at the Kentucky Jockey Club in November, after getting off to a bad start. He bounced back with a win at Holy Bull and will be one of the favorites at next month’s Florida Derby.
