141th Running of the Kentucky Derby
Kentucky Derby - The Kentucky Derby is the World's most famous horse race, and the first jewel of the Triple Crown. On the first Saturday of May, America's best 3-year old Thorough-breds assemble at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. For well over a hundred years, the Kentucky Derby has been the opening event that heralds Spring and Kentucky's social season, for the parties given prior to the Derby are as legendary as the race itself.
All it takes is a strong showing at the Kentucky Derby and it can make a horse a household name. Last year it was California Chrome (pictured). Is there a horse out there that can one-up Chrome’s success?
Chrome, of course, won the first two Triple Crown races before coming up short in the Belmont Stakes.
Immediately before the Derby, many events occur daily offering various kinds of entertainment. From the Great Balloon Race, to riverbank picnics enjoyed while the steam boats are racing down the Ohio River, the fantastic fireworks display, Thunder Over Louisville and the Pegasus Parade, the people of Kentucky enjoy entertaining long before the actual day of the Derby. NBC and ESPN will cover the entire event.

History was made at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May, as the second-largest crowd in Derby history witnessed the second-longest shot ever win the 131st Run for the Roses. Giacomo, a 50-1 longshot, paid a whopping $102.60 to win before 156,435 sun-drenched fans under the Twin Spires. Only Donerail's $184.90 payoff in 1913 and the 163,628 that witnessed the centennial Derby of 1974 were greater. A full field of twenty went to post in this Grade 1, $2 million classic event with Wood Memorial winner Bellamy Road sent off as the 5-2 favorite over 9-2 second choice Afleet Alex.
