Kentucky Derby 2011
Today is the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby. It is an annual event that pits the best three year old thoroughbred horses against the clock. It is held in Louisville on the first Saturday in May, so today is the day. While the Kentucky Derby is a horse race, the ladies will be part of the show with their beautiful hats. Having just watched the hat parade in London last week Friday, the hats at Kentucky today should be awe-inspiring. Be on the lookout.
Horse racing seems to be on the decline because you only hear about it at the time of each of the triple crowns. I know for sure that when it comes to the Belmont Stakes, New York is usually buzzing. That’s New York for you. I am sure Kentucky is full of excitement today, but when it comes to horse racing outside of these special days, nothing much is heard about horses.
Nonetheless, if you get a chance watch it. It is the greatest two minutes in sports. It will certainly get your adrenaline flowing. Enjoy!
