2013 Kentucky Derby Point Standings: Black Onyx, Govenor Charlie Join Party

Black Onyx and Govenor Charlie, two colts that were not on the Derby radar came up with big efforts last weekend and moved their way up the 2013 Kentucky Derby Points Standings.

Black Onyx was not even Triple Crown nominated, but shortly after winning the Grade 3 Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park and earning 50 points his connections put up $6,000 to make him eligible.

Govenor Charlie won Sunday’s Grade 3 Sunland Derby at Sunland Park in his stakes debut, earning 50 points for the victory and giving hall of fame trainer Bob Baffert another legitimate Kentucky Derby contender.

Baffert also trains Flashback, Code West, Super Ninety Nine, War Academy and Den’s Legacy.

The D. Wayne Lukas trained Will Take Charge is the points leader with 60. The colt won the Grade 2 Rebel at Oaklawn Park on Mar. 16 in his last outing. Lukas is pointing the colt to the Grade 1 Blue Grass at Keeneland on Apr. 13.

There are currently seven horses that have earned at least 50 points, and there are seven races coming up in the next three weeks that offer 100-40-20-10 points to the top four finishers.

If the Kentucky Derby is oversubscribed with more than 20 entrants, points with be the determining factor. It appears it likely will take between 40 and 50 points to assure a starting spot in the gate on the first Saturday of May.
