Kentucky Derby 2014 Horses That Can Run Distance

For most of these horses, the Kentucky Derby distance will be the most they have ever run.

Joe Nevils of the Daily Racing Form writes:

Taking into account the comparative AWDs of the sires and dams of this year’s Kentucky Derby runners, Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes winner Intense Holiday emerges as the horse that appears the most capable of handling the classic distance from a pedigree standpoint.

Intense Holiday is the field’s only starter to have both his sire and dam rank in the top six by average progeny winning distance Nevills added.

Wicked Strong at 10-1 odds also has favorable pedigree for 10 furlongs.
