This is a lot of fun.  Pledged donations go to horse charities at the end of the contest.

If you finish in the top 3, you’ll be able to choose the organization(s) to which your prize money is donated. All recipient organizations must be registered 501(C)3 charities and must support the well-being of the humans and animals in Thoroughbred racing or on the backstretch.

We’re off! Kentucky Derby Charity League 2017 Launches Today

"Over the eight years we’ve done this, we’ve raised nearly $10,000 for racing charities; past recipients include Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, Days’ End Horse RescueOur MimsOld Friends at Cabin Creek, and ReRun.

Back when we started, I pledged $75 to the charity of the winner’s choice. Quickly, pledges and donations from participants, unsolicited, followed, in impressive, generous amounts. As always, a donation is not required to play, but are welcome, in any amount.

Every dollar donated goes straight to the charities"

You must select and post your stable by this Saturday, March 4, by 12:00 PM CST.   Instructions and lots more detail at the link above.

This is the week that you get to add two horses to your stable:  One D horse, one E horse.

Go to the link, hit the Group DE tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet,  and you'll see your choices.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1p3gpCVfAJQOWTW4pW670LL1O52alUf5bDiaM-9df0w0/edit#gid=446390247
Then post them in the comments of either the original post:  https://brooklynbackstretch.com/2017/02/28/were-off-kentucky-derby-charity-league-2017-launches-today/
Deadline for posting your picks is 8 am ET Saturday morning, because the UAE Derby post time is about 9:25 am.

I am confused as to horses in Group D and E I can choose from. Can you help?

You can pick one horse from those listed as Group D horses.  They're on the spreadsheet tab labeled Groups DE.  Group D is the current top 20 point holders.

Group E includes all the horses listed in Groups A, B and C, (on the Group ABC tab) as long as the horse is NOT in Group D.  There are also 6 late nominations in Group E, those are listed on the Group DE tab.  You can pick one Group E horse.

For example, Sonneteer was initially Group C but is now Group D because he's earned enough points to be in the top 20. No Dozing was Group B but is now in Group E because he is no longer in the top 20 for points.

Does that help?

Looking at the D horses some of them are from the A and B list right?

Yes, if an A or B horse is still in the top 20, it's in Group D now.
