(WHAS 11)--We are getting closer to the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and closer to knowing the field of 20 for that first Saturday in May.
Already some of the hopefuls are arriving at Churchill Downs.
This is revolutionary trained by Todd Pletcher.
He arrived Sunday along with the favorite Verrazzano and Normandy Invasion and Oaks contenders close hatches and princess of Sylmar.
This is the first year for the new point system determining who gets into the field Orb and Verrazzano lead the way.
Rick Pitino's Goldencents is currently in third.
It will take about 30 points to get into the field.
