LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Nine horses have been made eligible to compete in this year's Triple Crown series with a $6,000 late payment.

Tampa Bay Derby winner Helium and Gotham Stakes winner Weyburn were among the late additions when payments were due. There are now 335 horses eligible to compete in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont stakes.

Any horse not nominated during the early or late phases can become eligible by paying a supplemental fee due at the time of entry for each race.
