Eddie Arcaro [February 19, 1916 - November 4, 1997] is considered the best rider to have ever played at the Kentucky Derby. Specifically, Arcaro is a five-time Kentucky Derby winner.

When is the Kentucky Derby?

The Kentucky Derby is run on the first Saturday in May of every year. In the related questions box below you will find the exact starting times for different time zones. In the related link is a Web Guide to The Kentucky Derby, which provides information on attending, watching and betting on the Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby, which is considered the most recognized race in horse racing, occurs the first Saturday in May every year. The Kentucky Derby is restricted to 3-year-old thoroughbred horses, each horse running for the first time in their life at a distance of a mile-and-a-quarter. The Derby, as it's known, is run at Churchill Downs in Lousiville, KY. It is the most recognized horse race in the world. Even non-horse racing fans know about the Kentucky Derby. If you are a horse racing fan, I linked a great website that is loaded with information on the Kentucky Derby, it's history and previous winners. I mention this site because it's also tied to a 3D horse racing game where you can actually run the Kentucky Derby on your computer as a jockey. Kinda fun!
