The event is aptly named “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” and it’s step one of horse racing’s Triple Crown. It usually draws an average of 150,000 visitors each year, including celebrities, presidents, and members of royal families. For the official Kentucky Derby website, go to Official Kentucky.

Kentucky Derby 2022 – Normalcy

Some changes from last year may prove to be new traditions? – Bejeweled face masks maybe to match those elaborate Kentucky Derby hats, anyone? Nah – I don’t think so.

The 148th running of the Kentucky Derby will be this Saturday, May 7. Post-time is 6:57 p.m. ET. and will take place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, as it traditionally does.
