Grey horses in Kentucky Derby

by Rose

This year there are 4 grey horses in the starting gate for Kentucky Derby 2016. What is the highest number of greys to run in a Kentucky Derby?

Answer: I don't think there is a record. Finding the results charts on line can be difficult too.

They used to be available through the KY Derby website, but no longer. Perhaps someone at the KY Derby Museum or the KY Derby marketing Dept. or even the Keeneland Library would have the info.

The greys running in 2016 are Mohaymen, Creator, Lani, and Destin

There have been 8 gray KY Derby winners, if that helps.

Determine (1954)
Decidedly (1962)
Dancer's Image (1968)
Spectacular Bid (1979)
Gato del Sol (1982)
Winning Colors (1988)
Silver Charm (1997)
Giacomo (2005)

I thought it was an interesting question, since so many grays are entered to run this year. With Tapit being such a prominent sire, I expect we'll be seeing a resurgence of greys in the next few years, at least here in the US.
