This Saturday, May 2nd, an American horseracing tradition continues. With the historic and fabled Twin Spires of Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky serving as a picturesque stage for top 3-year old runners, all eyes will be fixated upon the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby, the first leg of the U.S. Triple Crown. The one mile-and one quarter affair features a full field of twenty horses and offers a purse of $2 million, with $1,240,000 awarded to the winner. There is a quality cast of sophomores assembled and this very well may be one of the best crop of candidates we've seen in quite some time.
