T - Triple Crown Winner
 
F - Filly
 
D - In 1968, Dancer's Image, ridden by Bobby Ussery, trained by Lou Cavalaris, Jr., and owned by Peter Fuller, finished first, but was disqualified after a post-race urine sample revealed traces of a banned drug in the horse. The drug in question - Phenylbutazone - is now legal for use on racehorses in many states, including Kentucky.
 
Notes:
 
*D. Wayne Lukas swept the 1995 Triple Crown with two different horses.
 
*The 2008 second place winner, Eight Belles, marks the first time that any horse has died in the Kentucky Derby. The filly came in second place before breaking both front ankles on the cool-down. She was immediately euthanized. Churchill Downs has since announced that a magnolia tree will be planted in the garden of the Kentucky Derby Museum for Eight Belles and that her remains will be interred at its base. Churchill Downs has also announced that it will rename the La Troienne Stakes (Gr. III) in honor of Eight Belles. There are also plans for a ceremony on Derby Day 2009 in her memory.
 
*The Kentucky Derby is the oldest, continuous sporting event in America.
