-It is the Kentucky Derby tomorrow!! This will be the 138th annual derby and this is America's longest running sport! I started watching and getting into the derby in high school when my favorite teacher offered extra credit and other prizes for a correct pick of the winner. She even let us go to the computer lab to research all the horses. Other random derby facts: it is quite the feat to be a Triple Crown winner. In order to do that you need to win the following races- The Preakness, The Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. You can have a horse of any age in two of the three races but to be in the Kentucky Derby you have to be 3 years old, so you only get one shot at it!!
Do you have your derby hat ready?
