I read in the DM Register a while back that Denny Albaugh is also part owner. The article linked above also states that Paddy O'Prado is on the bubble for the derby. I really don't understand the qualification process. Anyone care to enlighten me?

From the DSM Register:
The May 1 Derby is limited to 20 horses with the most earnings in graded stakes races. The $150,000 that Paddy OíPrado earned by finishing second in the Blue Grass gives him $250,950 in graded stakes winnings, which ranks 19th among the nationís 3-year-olds
Entries are based upon graded stakes earnings. Paddy will be on the bubble, as they will take the top 20 for the derby. Defections or injuries could help his cause. There is usually a derby trial that runs two weeks prior that is the very last chance to get in.
