Yes, it’s that time again, the 2018 Kentucky Derby is about to explode back onto the scene!
This will be the 144th annual Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs and we can’t wait for “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” to begin.
Well, there’s not long to wait, as the Kentucky Derby its self is always held on the first Saturday in May.
That means that it’s all set to kick off this Saturday, the 5th of May 2018!
The Kentucky Derby
The Kentucky Derby is the first of the Triple Crown races, which run throughout the year, to be run and it is sure not to disappoint!
There will be 20 horses all battling it out to be the one who wins that epic $2 million dollar 1st prize and despite the fact that it only lasts for two minutes in total, brace yourself for a wild ride, as they don’t call it ‘’Horse racing’s most highly anticipated event’’ for nothing.
This year the Kentucky Derby is scheduled to set off at 6:34 p.m. ET, though the actual race is set to start at 6:46 p.m. and as mentioned, though it only lasts for about two minutes, they are two of the most thrilling minutes of the whole sporting year!
Last year’s Kentucky Derby winner was ‘’Always Dreaming’’ and it seemed to do him the world of good!
Make sure you catch the race, keep dreaming too, and place a wager on your favorite hoarse
