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!
