The 137th Kentucky Derby is going to be Run at the Churchill Downs, May 5th
The Kentucky Derby is the longest continuous sporting event in America.
I am a huge horse lover and race in speed events myself, so naturally the Kentucky Derby is a big deal for me.
The thrill the riders experience has to be one of the greatest. Going 45-50 miles per hour along side other horses, with just a lightweight saddle to hold you down must be an adrenaline rush!
I have never bet on a horse and I have never actually been to the race, but I plan on making the trip sometime soon in the future. I haven’t been able to really keep up with the contestants, but I will spend hours in front of the TV the day of to pick my favorite.
I also think that it would be awesome to be on of the broadcasters who rides up next to the winner and interviews them while riding down the track!!
