The second leg of the FT Triple Crown is on soon.

The May 1st running of the 2021 Kentucky Derby will be the 147th time that the race has been held since the first derby horses raced down the track in Louisville in 1875. This year, post positions are expected to be drawn on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 with the official announcement of horses, positions, jockeys and trainers, and morning line odds for this year's Run for the Roses.

The final field will be posted in here on Tuesday. Get your names down now!

Once the field is listed, you'll choose five horses. If any of them place in the top 10, you score points for that. I can't remember the exact point breakdown, though.
