Why did they shorten the Kentucky Derby race track in 1896?

I wouldn't use this for a research paper, but I think the Kentucky Derby was shortened because it simply was too much for the horse to run that long. There is a bigger risk of death to horses if they are forced to sprint for a longer amount of time, and I'll use Barbaro as an example. Barbaro was a horse who competed in the Kentucky Derby who shattered his leg two weeks after the Derby which lead to death. Although this occurred after the shortening of the race (2006 I believe), the Derby is still a risk of injury or even death in some cases. --14-year-old horse freak :) I hope I hinted an idea?

How old can the horse be in the Kentucky Derby?

The horse has to be three years old.All horses are considered to have a "birthday" on January 1st, regardless of what was the actual date of birth of each horse. This can be a serious matter in the Kentucky Derby, where only "three year old" horses are eligible to run. If a horse was born on Dec. 31st, it is considered one year older than a horse born on Jan. 1st, and would therefore only be eligible to race in the Derby when it was chronologically less than two and a half years old.

How fast are the horses in the Kentucky Derby?

Very fast are the horses in the Kentucky Derby. The winning horses tend to run the 1-1/4 mile [2 kilometer; 10 furlong] racetrack in just over two minutes. But two horses have beaten even that speed. In 2001, Monarchos [b. 1998] had the winning time of 1 minute 59.97 seconds. The record still is 1 minute 59-2/5 seconds by Secretariat [March 30, 1970 - October 4, 1989] in 1973.

What time does the 2013 Kentucky Derby race start?

I was born on Derby Day in 1947 and have been trying to find out what time the race began. (It is called "post time") My parents told me that I was "breaking out of the starting gate at the same time as the horses on that day." They crossed the finish line but I'm still running the race.
