Known as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports", the annual Kentucky Derby race is an opportunity to experience the excitement of the most important of all horse races. 

The Kentucky Derby race

The Derby, known as "The Run for the Roses" because of the garland of 554 red roses draped over the winner, has been a tradition since 1875. The famous racehorse Secretariat won with a time of 1:59 minutes, the fastest record to date. Each year, the women attending put on their fanciest hats and everyone sips on the traditional Derby beverage, the mint julep.
