2024 Kentucky Derby Entries

The new favourite for the 2024 Kentucky Derby is Sierra Leone. Chad Brown's colt has only been beaten once in his career so far and jumped to the head of the betting for this Classic after an impressive victory in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.

Todd Pletcher's Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Fierceness sits second in the betting, following a bloodless success in the Florida Derby last month. Stronghold has been well-backed following his victory over favourite Imagination in the Santa Anita Derby. Another local derby winner, Catching Freedom has been supported following his Louisianna Derby success at Fair Grounds.

The leading International hope in this year's contest is Japanese star Forever Young, who took out the UAE Derby on Dubai World Cup Night at Meydan. T O Password will join Forever Young on the plane over from Japan, but he sits a long way adrift from his countryman in the market.

Michael McCarthy's Jeff Ruby Stakes winner Endlessly, Billy Mott's Wood Memorial hero Resilience, and Brad Cox's Lexington Stakes winner Encino also feature in the Kentucky Derby betting. Other possible runners in the opening leg of the US Triple Crown include Dornoch, Track Phantom, Timberlake, Muth, Air Of Defiance and Just A Touch.
