Without further ado, it is my pleasure to announce the return of the greatest two minutes in all sports,

The Kentucky Derby!!! 

The Kentucky Derby is a long-standing tradition in Kentucky that started in 1875! Since then, the Derby has become a worldwide phenomenon attracting people from near and far to Louisville. 

Horse breeders, trainers, jockeys, and betters are just a few of the stakeholders in the race. Many people work tirelessly in the horse racing industry leading up to this moment. 22 thoroughbreds have qualified for the race this year:

Attending the Derby is something each person should do at least once! The atmosphere at the tack is electric. Everything and everyone are decadently adorned and dressed in their best attire. Even Hollywood and government elites come to witness the gripping spectacle.

The race leaves you on the edge of your seat as the horse’s thunder around the 2km track. When it's all said and done, the winner of the Kentucky Derby receives $1.86/ 3 million of the Kentucky Derby's purse, a trophy, and the garland of roses.

Tickets are still available in different packages at Churchill Downs: reserved seats, box seats, and dining experiences. Click here to make your selection and purchase! If you plan to attend in person, make sure you get up early, feed yourself well, dress to impress and brace yourself for a long, fun day.


Derby viewing parties are popular on Derby day. It's a fun way to view the race with your best friends but distanced from the crowd. Mint juleps all around!

However you celebrate Derby, stay safe, and have a great time! As a local, I love and appreciate Derby season and how it affects my city and its citizens.
