The Kentucky Derby is the first race of the Triple Crown, the most important horse event in the United States and the race will take place this coming May 4th or the first Saturday of May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

There is no doubt the Kentucky Derby is the most recognized and awaited race of them all. It is also known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” due to the distance it covers of 1¼ miles (10 furlongs).

As part of a qualifying procedure for a Kentucky Derby entry, the horses compete in different prep races from September through April. The last two prep races will be ran on April 13th at the Arkansas Derby and Blue Grass accordingly.

A latest update on the Derby contenders is the recent agreement between Jockey Javier Castellano and Fox Hill Farms, Inc. to ride Normandy Invasion, a beautiful colt that has earnings of $300,240 and 44 points which puts him 11th on the Derby leaderboard.
