History:  One of the most recent additions in the Road to the Kentucky Derby, the Sunland Derby was first run in 2003. It is the only Derby prep race at the venue in New Mexico, which heavily pursued a race that would bring attention to the venue following the approval of slot machines in 1999, which brought in additional revenue and awareness to the track which had first opened in 1959. They partnered with WinStar Farm in 2003 to run the race and it officially became the only graded stakes race at the track in 2010 and is now the final race in the first leg of the Championship series. Bob Baffett leads the list of trainers with most wins with three and both Victor Espinoza and Martin Garcia have crossed the line first on two occasions as jockey. The 2016 event was cancelled due to an outbreak of Equid alphaherpesvirus 1 and the 2020 event was cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
