Sole Volante, Ete Indien, 8 Others Complete 2020 Kentucky Derby Betting

In less than two months, the Kentucky Derby will finally start after it was postponed last May.

In less than two months, the Kentucky Derby will finally start after it was postponed last May. It is now taking the middle jewel of the Triple Crown show, which will commence on September 5, 2020, at Churchill Down. This year, the Derby is featuring 20 horses inside the dirt track comprising Belmont Stakes winners and Derby-prep accomplishers.

In the reports released by the Churchill Downs Inc. last month, the Derby will accept spectators to witness the racing show. However, the capacity is reduced to at least 50% since the audiences should maintain social distancing as part of the rules. In all hospitality areas, the fans can only have limited access to avoid the spread of Coronavirus.

While the Derby is making the best effort to showcase another classic edition of the Run For The Roses amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, the horses are also conditioned to compete. With the ten strongest horses who were initially named to join the event, here are the remaining ten horses that will complete the 2020 Kentucky Derby horse race line up.

Sole Volante

Sole Volante was the  6th placer of the Belmont Stakes last June. He is joining the roster for this year’s Derby edition, and will be ridden by Luca Panici and trained by Patrick L. Biancone. Sole Volante also earned big placements in the prep races, which includes Tampa Bay Derby (2nd), Pulpit Stakes (1st), Sam F. Davis Stakes (1st), and Mucho Macho Man Stakes (3rd).

Ete Indien

Ete Indien is also heading to Churchill Downs this September to compete for the Derby. He is another entry by Patrick L. Biancone but is ridden by Florent Geroux. Also, Ete Indien is the current winner of the Fountain of Youth Stakes. His other achievements include Dixiana Bourbon Stakes (8th place), Florida Derby (3rd), and Holy Bull Stakes (2nd).


With two completed horse racing games since birth, Pneumatic is joining the Kentucky Derby lineup this year. He is ridden by Ricardo Santana, Jr. and trained by Steven M. Asmussen. Pneumatic competed during the Belmont Stakes last June and finished in 4th place. His other accomplishment was a third-place finish in the Matt Winn Stakes.

Money Moves

Todd Pletcher is not running out of entry to the Derby as he is sending a debut runner in the stakes races. Money Move who is ridden by Rider TBA will take a chance in the Run For The Roses, which only accomplished Allowance and Maiden race since birth. Although he did not partake in any prep-races, he’s a reserved colt replacing Charlatan who will be missing the Derby.

Art Collector

After winning the Blue Grass Stakes, last July 11, 2020, Art Collector will vie on the Run For The Roses without hesitation. This colt in an entry ridden by Brain Joseph Hernandez, Jr. and trained by Thomas Drury, Jr. He has been joining many Allowance Claiming races since debut and won significant placement during the Dixiana Bourbon Stakes.


Bob Baffert was in high hopes this year to win the Triple Crown through Nadal but was disappointed. Nadal has to retire early because of a bone fracture, which is replaced by Cezanne. Although this colt is taking a debut run in the upcoming Kentucky Derby, Baffert is eyeing for him to clinch the title possibly.


Enforceable, a son of Tapit who ended 4th place during the Blue Grass Stakes, is also joining the Kentucky Derby this year. Compared to the horses mentioned above, he has accomplished many horse racing events since birth. His notable achievements include Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity (3rd), Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (4th), Lecomte Stakes (1st), Risen Star Stakes (2nd), and Louisiana Derby (5th).

Mr. Big News

After winning the Oaklawn Stakes last April 11, 2020, he was immediately sent for bidding to participate in the Kentucky Derby. His other achievements include Risen Star Stakes (5th) and Blue Grass Stakes (6th).
