Does your child love horse racing? The Kentucky Derby, America’s most prestigious horse race, was founded in 1875 and took place every year on the first Saturday of May at Churchill Downs racecourse, Louisville, Kentucky. The Kentucky Derby opens the two-week Kentucky Derby Festival.

It was dubbed the “Running for the Roses,” derived from the blanket of roses that covered the winners. In the United States, it is also known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” or the “Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” because of its approximate duration. It was the first leg of the American Triple Crown, followed by the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes.

A horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown. The Kentucky Derby has many traditions, including drinking mint juleps, wearing carnival hats, and singing “My Old Kentucky Home” as the horses make their way onto the track.
