    2015 Kentucky Derby

    On Saturday, May 2, Churchill Downs will host the 141st Kentucky Derby - the first leg of the US Triple Crown - what many refer to as the most exciting two minutes in sports. Offering up a prize pool of $2,000,000, the Grade 1 event will be contested by the fastest 3-year-olds in the industry. To secure a spot in the starting gates, potential contenders must embark on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, competing in a series of prep races that award points to the top finishers. Come Mid-April, the 20 horses with the highest point totals will be the ones you'll spot bursting out of the starting gate on the first Saturday in May.
