The Kentucky Derby is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky and is a Grade I, one and a quarter race for three-year old thoroughbred horses. It always commences on the first May of the New Year and is the concluding event to a two-week-long festival. It’s rich in history and tradition, and is highly regarded as one of the most prestigious sporting events in the U.S.

The very first Kentucky Derby was won by jockey Oliver Lewis and his thoroughbred “Arisides” in 1875 with a time of 2:37.75.
