The horses were still racing to reach Kentucky Derby spots. For the starters, the points scale contest was low. Therefore, they have turned their interest to the Kentucky Derby conversation. Here we are going to share the newest update of the Kentucky Derby Points Bubble.
Keep in mind that the points are relevant to the Los Alamitos Derby and beyond.
It is true that the points gathered by the starters for finishing the first or second were not enough to make them more relevant in the leaderboard.
The experts suggested that Los Alamitos might not be optimistic about contributing some entries. It is still not possible to make an entry in the Kentucky Derby. Well, the top two can be the best contenders, but they still have the burdens to collect more points in the next races.
On the Bubble
There are some on the bubble.
Uncle Chuck is on the bubble for its 20 points.
Uncle Chuck has pretty much interesting back stories before qualifying. He made his debut race at Santa Anita and won although he didn’t race until June 12, 2020. Obviously, it is a memorable event for the supporters and relevant folks. In his second career, the result would be the same at Los Alamitos Derby. He is not a small deal. But he needs more points before participating. He remains on the bubble if he does not enter the top 20. But we can see such great potents from him.
Then there is Thousand Words with 33 points. Thousand Words was undefeated in his three career starts. At this point, he has a better chance than Uncle Chuck. He has the chance to turn the table. His second-place finish at Los Alamitos Derby does not provide him enough points to make it to the top 20.
Out of the bubble
Cosmo has never won a race but he still receives Kentucky Derby points. He has four career starts but no win. Regardless of this fact, he still has the chance to reserve the spot in the Kentucky Derby. But his current point is too low to get him to the top 20.
Then there is Great Power who has 2 points. He has been relevant since his third career race. The yard has tested him. And it is agreeable that he can make himself ready. But the journey is still long. He will need to find much better opportunities to set the stones.
