The entry list for Rolex has been set, and Thorougbred aficionados from all over have taken to poring over it for former racehorses who will be making their appearance on center line in a few weeks. Thanks to the diligent research of the brains behind the Retired Racehorse Project, we’ve got the most updated list of OTTBs as well as pure, unraced Thoroughbreds who will be competing in Kentucky this year.

You can find the full analysis of the Thoroughbreds over on the Retired Racehorse Project here. We’d also like to add that Lisa Barry’s horse, F.I.S. Prince Charming, is a New Zealand Thoroughbred who raced until he was four in his home country. Fellow OTTB supporter Allie Conrad did some digging based on the sire information listed in the FEI database and narrowed the results down to:

Waitui Jo (NZ), 2003 gelding, by His Royal Highness (NZ), out of Mystic (NZ)
