How to watch the 2024 Florida Derby: TV/live stream info, entries, and more

The top thoroughbred horses are back in action this Saturday, March 30 in the 2024 Florida Derby in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Saturday’s race is another stop on the road to the 2024 Kentucky Derby which takes place on May 4. 100-50-25-15-10 qualifying points will be awarded to the top five finishers.

The Florida Derby has proved to be one of the most significant stops in the lead-up to “The Run for the Roses”. Since 2000, 7 Kentucky Derby winners have run in the Florida Derby—that’s more than any other prep race that offers 100 points to the winner. Last year’s Kentucky Derby champion Mage finished second in the 2023 Florida Derby.

Saturday’s race features old and new faces. Fierceness, the 2023 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) champion, looks for redemption after a shocking third-place finish as the 1/5 favorite in last month’s G3 Holy Bull, while Conquest Warrior is set to make his graded stakes debut here for Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey.
