About Kentucky Derby

Being one of three races along with the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes that make up the Triple Crown of horse racing, the Kentucky Derby is the first of three races and arguably the Triple Crown's most well-known race— its certainly the most attended and watched horse race in the country. The Kentucky Derby has been running every year without fail for 140 years, and carries a rich history that features some of the greatest horses and jockeys in all of horse racing.

Taking place at Churchill Downs Raceway in Louisville, Kentucky, the Derby features only three-year-old thoroughbreds and is exactly two kilometers in length and lasts approximately two minutes, earning it the title of "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports."

the first place prize regular carries with it a $2 million cash award, adding to the prestige of victory in horse racing's most coveted contest.

Famous horses that have won the Kentucky Derby include underdog-story and future film inspiration Secretariat, who went on to win the Triple Crown, being one of only 15 horses to do so in 141 total derbies.
