Willie Shoemaker won the Kentucky Derby four times. His mounts were: Swaps (1955); Tomy Lee (1959); Lucky Debonair (1965); and Ferdinand (1986). In addition, he would have won the 1957 Derby aboard Gallant Man had he not misjudged the finish line and stood up in the stirrups, thinking the race was over.
Early Times Mint Julep is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby and has been for over 18 years. Each year at the Derby, nearly 120,000 Mint Juleps are sold during the Kentucky Derby weekend at Churchill Downs. However, there are other drinks available.
It was 2 minutes and 1.20 seconds.
The "quarter" portion of the name (I hope the "horse" part is obvious) comes from the fact that they were specifically bred to have good performance in a run of a quarter of a mile: they're essentially the "sprinters" of horses (for comparison, the Kentucky Derby is five times that distance).
yes he is a 3 times champion
Issac Burns Murphy raced in the Kentucky Derby 11 times and won the event in 1884 on Buchanan, on Riley in 1890 and on Kingman in 1891. He had 1,412 starts with 628 wins which is a record that will last forever.
The Queen has attended the Kentucky Derby one time (in 2007), although her sister, Princess Margaret attended in 1974, making the Queen's visit the 2nd time the Derby was attended by Royalty.

The 2010 Kentucky Derby was run over a sloppy track. However, at race time it stopped raining and the sun actually came out. Super Saver won that race. The 2009 Kentucky Derby was run over a sloppy track and was won by Mine That Bird. The winning jockey both times was Calvin Borel.
Two jockeys have won the Kentucky Derby five times: Eddie Arcaro (1938, 1941, 1945, 1948, 1952); Bill Hartack (1957, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1969).
G. Stevens won the Grand National five times, in 1856, 1863, 1864, 1869 and 1870, and won the Kentucky Derby three times, in 1988, 1995 and 1997. Of course, it isn't the same G. Stevens; the Grand National winner was George Stevens and the Kentucky Derby winner was Gary Stevens. But it's probably the closest to an answer you can get, since no jockey has won both races.
Eddie Arcaro and Bill Hartack each have five wins.
May 8, 1915 was the date of the 41st Kentucky Derby. The horse that crossed the finish line first was Regret [1912 - April 11, 1934]. It was the very first of three times that the winning horse was to be a filly ... thus far.
May 3, 1980 was the date on which the 106th Kentucky Derby was held. On that day the winning horse was Genuine Risk [February 15, 1977 - August 18, 2008]. The outcome represented only the second of three times that fillies have been first to cross the Derby's finish line ... thus far.

A horse (cold, gelding or filly) may only run in the Kentucky Derby at the age of three-years-old. So the answer is that a horse can only run once. That's what makes it such a special win.
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. He in fact is considered the greatest jockey in American horse racing history. That honor comes from the fact of his being one of only two jockeys to win the Derby five times. But he also is the only jockey to have won the U.S. Triple Crown twice: in 1941 on Whirlaway, and in 1948 on Citation.
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!
Gate Dancer [1981 - 1998] originally came in fourth in the 1984 Kentucky Derby but was disqualified and placed fifth. During the race Gate Dancer bumped Fali Time several times. A foul claimed by Fali Time's jockey and a steward's inquiry resulted in the disqualification and switch to fifth place.
