Highest Performance Figures Earned By Each Horse Coming Into the 2024 Kentucky Derby

Listed below are the 2024 Kentucky Derby contenders recent prep races where they earned their highest Final Time Rating.  Today's Racing Digest's exclusive Final Time Rating (FNL RAT), which can be found in our unique performance projected race sheets, has proven to be a strong indicator in predicting the outcome of key races like the 2024 Kentucky Derby.

The Final Time Rating's was designed to help identify a horse's ability to finish strong or unleash a big closing kick when needed to overtake the leader down the final stretch.  In 7 of the last 8 Kentucky Derby's the horse that had earned the highest FNL RAT in a recent prep race finished in the top 3 positions.

The Final Time Rating is one of the key figures our staff of expert handicappers rely on when handicapping classier races such as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont or any other Triple Crown or Graded Stakes race.
