(Preakness Entry Rules,)

The Preakness uses a three-tiered process to decide who can get in the field if more than 14 are entered. Horses not already nominated to the Triple Crown can be supplemented for cost a of $150,000, but apparently they come last in priority behind any horse already nominated. Conquest Mo Money would fall into that category this year!


Tier #1 – The first seven positions are determined by graded stakes earnings as in the Derby.


Tier #2 – The next four slots are given to the top lifetime earners in non-restricted races, so any earnings from restricted races would be subtracted from their total earnings.


Tier #3 – The final three positions are given to the horses with the most lifetime earnings regardless of the type of race, open or restricted.


If there are any ties, they will draw lots from the tied horses to pick who gets in the race. Also, no horse who earns purse money in The Kentucky Derby (which is the first 5 finishers) will be denied the opportunity to start in the Preakness.
