Off to the Races
The Kentucky Derby is known as the greatest two minutes in sports - for its approximate run time. It is a top rank, Grade I Stakes race for 3-year-old thoroughbred horses.
The 20 horses racing in the Kentucky Derby have accumulated points in 35 races across the country and world in order to be there and compete for the winning purse of two million dollars.
An exciting week of fun-filled parties lead up to the Kentucky Oaks on Friday, a Grade I Stakes race for 3-year-old thoroughbred fillies. The winning filly is given a garland of lilies - appropriately named "lilies for fillies." Traditionally, many attendees wear pink on this day in support of breast cancer survivors. Pink Lily cocktails are the day's themed beverage.
On Derby day it's considered good luck to wear a hat and a full day of racing culminates in the Kentucky Derby. Test your handicapping skills before the big race and practice your "win", "place", and "show" wagers throughout the afternoon - or enjoy a mint julep and a cigar.
