About The Event
The Kentucky Derby is a horse race held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. The Oaks (Friday) and the Derby (Saturday) are the oldest continuously contested sporting events in history, and the only horse races to be held at their original site since its conception.
The 2020 Kentucky Derby will be the 146th Kentucky Derby and is dubbed “The Run for the Roses,” stemming from the blanket of roses draped over the winner. It is also known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” because of its approximate duration. The Kentucky Oaks is considered by some to be among the most popular horse races in American horse-racing society due to its high attendance. The Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks both are for three-year-old steeds. The Oaks is a gender-specific race, allowing only 3-year-old female horses, or fillies, to qualify and compete and The Derby is for both genders.
