The 100th Anniversary of the Kentucky Derby

Kentucky has long been associated with champion race horses.  First run in 1875, the Kentucky Derby is the longest-running horse racing event in the United States.  The derby is run every year on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.  The contest is for 3-year-old horses, running one and a quarter miles.

The race is also known as the “run for the roses,” as its winner is presented with a blanket of roses.  Along with the Preakness and the Belmont stakes, the Kentucky Derby is part of U.S. horse racing’s coveted Triple Crown.
