How old must a horse be for the derby?

Assuming you are speaking of the Kentucky Derby: This Grade I Stakes race is for 3-year-old Thoroughbreds of either sex. A Thoroughbred technically turns its next age on January 1 of any given year. Because horses generally are born between January and June, a horse entering the Kentucky Derby, which is held in May, usually will be 3-years-old both technically (because of the January 1 date) and actually (because most are born before the early May date of the Derby) -- but there may be as much as a 4- or 5-month difference in the actual ages of the horses in the Derby.

Did Seabiscuit ever win the Kentucky Derby?

Seabiscuit was a champion thoroughbred born in 1933. The Kentucky Derby is limited to 3-year-old race horses. Seabiscuit was not recognized as a champion until 1937, which would have made him too old to participate in the Kentucky Derby. Seabiscuit's best racing years were from 1937 through 1938. An injury stopped Seabiscuit from racing in 1939. He came back in 1940 to win the Santa Anita Handicap, fantastic feat. The movie Seabiscuit is spectacular. Hope you have seen it.

How old must a horse be in order to in the Kentucky Derby?

Three years old. All horses in the Northern hemisphere are considered to have a "birthday" on January 1st, regardless of what was the actual date of birth of each horse. This can be a serious matter in the Kentucky Derby, where only "three year old" horses are eligible to run. If a horse was born on Dec. 31st, it is considered one year older than a horse born on Jan. 1st, and would therefore only be eligible to race in the Derby when it was chronologically less than two and a half years old. However, most foals are born between January and May, with the advantage being a few extra months' growth, which at that age can be significant.
