Kentucky Derby Betting
And just because you can't be at Churchill Downs in person (that's where they race the "Run for the Roses"), you can watch the most exciting 2 minute race live on TV.
The Kentucky Derby is one of the crown jewels of the elusive Triple Crown which includes the Belmont Stakes and the Preakness Stakes.
For over 125 years the Kentucky Derby has been everyone's race - from the dapper men and beautiful women, all in hats and sipping on frosty mint juleps, to the laid-back infield crowd who picnic on fried chicken and toss around Frisbees.
They're all there to witness the world's premier horse-racing event. "Riders up" booms the paddock judge. The trainers give a leg up to the riders and send them out through the tunnel and onto the world's most famous track as the University of Louisville band strikes up Stephen Foster's "My Old Kentucky Home".
After the real Call to the Derby Post is blown, as the Kentucky Derby starters make their way from the paddock onto the track, the crowd in the grandstands rises as the University of Louisville band plays what has become all but the official song of the state of Kentucky.
Written by Stephen Foster in 1853, My Old Kentucky Home is a sentimental, yearning song that celebrates the gentility of Bluegrass country. So as the horses take the track on the first Saturday of May, and with a mint julep in hand, the entire state celebrates in song one of the most emotional moments in all of American sports.
Minutes later, a field of the best three-year-old thoroughbreds breaks outs out of the gate with an explosion of pent-up energy. The jubilant crowd yell in unison, "THEY'RE OFF" and prepares to witness history in the making.

My Old Kentucky Home
If you wake up on Derby Day, and the sky is cloudy, rest assured that by
post time the clouds will dissipate, and that once again, at the moment
that strikes the heaviest on every Kentuckians' heart, the sun will shine
bright for the Kentucky Derby.
The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home,
'Tis summer, the people are gay;
The corn top's ripe and the meadow's in the bloom,
While the birds make music all the day.
The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
All merry, all happy and bright;
By'n by hard times comes a-knockin' at the door,
Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!
Weep no more, my lady!
Oh weep no more today.
We will sing one song for my old Kentucky home,
For my old Kentucky home, far away.
