The Derby is for horses age 7 and under (foal date of 2016 or later) unless horse competed as a 4 year old, then the cutoff age is 6 (foal date of 2017 or later). Derby horses only have two years of Derby eligibility.
The times from the first go of all categories (futurity, derby and open) will be combined. The fastest 8 times will then be eligible to compete in the Golden Buckle Cup against the visiting Europeans. If one person has more than one of those times, the eligibility will roll to the 9th person, and so on, until there are 8 individuals competing for the USA.
These 8 people will then also be awarded a spot in the next Golden Buckle Malta 2023 Cup race – travel, stay and expenses included.
