Jace’s Road has a spot in the expected full field of 20 and is counting down the days to the 149th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 6 at Churchill Downs.

The colt will be the seventh Kentucky Derby runner for West Point Thoroughbreds, aiming to join 2017 hero Always Dreaming in bringing home the roses.

Florent Geroux, the pilot in Jace’s Road’s stakes win in the Gun Runner at Fair Grounds on December 26, will have the mount again on the First Saturday in May.

Jace’s Road was on the bubble for a spot in the Derby field for a few weeks (based on points accumulated in qualifying races) but he is in the clear now after a couple of defections.

The post-position draw for the Kentucky Derby will be conducted Monday and can be watched live at 2 ET on the Kentucky Derby Youtube page.
