Churchill Downs 1940
Twighlight Tear 1944Kentucky Derby Experience the thrill of The Most Exciting TwoMinutes in Sports, the Kentucky Derby!

TheKentucky Derby is one of the oldest thoroughbred horse races in the United States. Itis thefirst jewel in the Triple Crown which includesthe Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes. Atone andquarter miles, theraceis known as"The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports".

The KentuckyDerby occursevery May and is oneof the most well-attended races in theTriple Crown. Tradition isan enormouspart ofthe Derby experience. Think about strolling around sippinga Mint Julep, watching the celebrities and thewell-dressed ladies inlargehats. At theend of the, take a walk over tothe winner'senclosureto see the winning horseblanketed with acoverletof 554 red roses.

Listento the runs ofpastTriple Crown winners,War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941) and Citation (1948). There have onlybeen 11 Triple Crown winners in the over 100 yearhistory of the race. It is ahardfeat for ahorsetoaccomplish. A horsehas torunthree races within five weeks,and each of those races is longer thanothers the horses have run in the past.

As a bonus: included areseveralof the races of the legendary Seabiscuit.Seabiscuit, born in 1933, quickly gained a reputation as a knobby-kneed, lazy and underperforming "also ran". Trainers saw potential in the horse, but could notbringit out until Seabiscuit began racing in California. On the West Coast, Seabiscuit began to live up to his potential, winning many races but finishing in extremelynarrowseconds in the Santa Anita Handicap races. After a highly publicizedraceagainst BingCrosby'sLigaroti, Seabiscuitwas givenashotat the "Match of the Century" against TripleCrown winner War Admiral.After the match of the century, Seabiscuit received whatwas expectedto be a career ending leg injury, but with care andperseverance. Seabiscuit's last race was the incrediblydramatic1940 Santa Anita Handicap. Seabiscuit'sperformanceandcomebackmade him a symbol of hope during the Depression Years.

One thing that can besaid about anyhorse race, butespeciallythese significant historic races they are the most exciting two minutes in sports!
