Live coverage begins at 7:00 PM ET on CNBC and Peacock. 100-50-25-15-10 qualifying points will be awarded to the top five finishers for this year’s Kentucky Derby which takes place on May 4.

Wynstock and Imagination, two Bob Baffert trainees are expected to be contenders in Saturday’s race, however, they will not be eligible to run in the Kentucky Derby due to Baffert’s suspension from Churchill Downs-owned tracks.
