2018 Major Events; Kentucky Derby

America’s greatest race and one of the world’s most famous races, the Kentucky Derby is back again bigger and better in 2018. Held at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, this one and one-quarter mile or two kilometer race for 3-year-old thoroughbreds is known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports”.

Taking place on the first Saturday in May each year, the event typically draws a monstrous crowd of over 165,000 people. This is a sporting event that every racing purist and fanatical sporting punter must attend. As the first race of the famous “Triple Crown” series, stakes are high as everyone strives for their horse to be draped in the blanket of 554 red roses.
