Don’t Miss the Kentucky Derby in 2017!
The Kentucky Derby is a famous American horse race, reserved for exemplary thoroughbred horses three years old or older, and is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, the first Saturday in May during the two week long Kentucky Derby Festival. The race takes place on a track a quarter mile (2 km) long at Churchill Downs.
The race is known as the “Two Most Exciting Minutes in Sports” by its approximate duration and also is called “The Run for the Roses” because of the garland of roses given to the winner.
This competition is the first date of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred racing in the United States and usually draws some 150,000 followers. Will you be one? If so, you’ll need some Kentucky Derby 2017 tickets, which you can get above!
