The answer is surprisingly complex. The race is determined by the fastest time, so while a horse could not win the event if it was not the fastest time, it could still lose. So instead of using a simple average, the race’s winner is awarded the fastest time for that time period for that race’s class.
For example, a horse that was last in a Kentucky Derby, with a time of 2:09.5, has scored as the winner of the Kentucky Derby Class 4 class. That would mean that it came in second place, or an average of 1:03.2, the fastest time for that race’s class.
Some horses can make a comeback after a terrible year, but others do not. For example, in the 2009 Virginia Derby, the winning horse was ridden by a woman named Svetlana Kuznetsova, who would have been the winner of the 2012 Miss National, at the track’s old layout. The next day, she was outfitted in a headdress and had her neck broken. That would have resulted in an automatic disqualification, which would have been used against the horse instead of its winning time.
A horse’s time does not affect its ability to run in the race. Each horse is given a percentage of its class’ time. A class of 4 (which includes all of the Class 3 and Class 2 horses), for example, has an average class time of 1:14.6. The 1:14.6 is the second-fastest class time for the class for that race.
While a horse’s time will affect how many times it can break a time barrier, it will not determine a winner. There may be four finalists for a Kentucky Derby Award, but only one horse can finish in the top eight.
When do the horses run?
As mentioned above, each race has an opening time period of two and a half hours. The race usually starts after 11 a.m. with each of the four classes. The race announcer then announces the winner and the horse’s name.
There is a three-minute time limit between starts; time can be used in any manner in the race.
What happens on the last lap?
There is a 10-minute runoff period, during which the first-place horses can be disqualified, but the top-rated horse has no need to worry. The top-ranked thoroughbred can make it as far as fourth place during the last
