Gun Runner, Exaggerator, Fellowship or Dazzling Gem? These are a few of the Leaderboard ranked horses racing in this years Kentucky Derby, Saturday, May 7th. mint-julep-su-682571-x

The Kentucky Derby race is the longest running sporting event in the United States, dating back to 1875. The race has continuously produced “the most exciting two minutes in sports”; uninterrupted, even when coinciding with profound historical events like The Great Depression and World Wars I & II.

There are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. It’s rich traditions – sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing “My Old Kentucky Home” – transcend the Kentucky Derby from just a sporting event, making it a celebration of southern culture and a true icon of Americana. Planning to throw a Derby party this upcoming weekend? Here’s how to watch and do it right by tradition.
