Building upon an initiative to further international interest in America's greatest race, Churchill Downs officials have partnered with racing officials in England, France and Ireland to create a path to the 144th running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (GI) for horses based in Europe. The new "European Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve" is a stand-alone series of seven races that is separate from America’s 35-race "Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve" sequence. Only one invitation to compete in the Kentucky Derby will be extended with preference given to the horses with the most points in the "European Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve" series. No invitation will be extended beyond the Top 4 point earners but if a horse also qualifies through America’s 35-race "Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve" series, the invite will be extended to the next eligible horse. If two or more horses have the same number of points, the tiebreakers are earnings in non-restricted stakes races as of April 14, 2018 followed by lifetime earnings as of April 14, 2018.
