Kentucky Derby

The locals in Louisville, Kentucky, take their sports seriously. Thousands of people converge on Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby to see 3-year-old Thoroughbreds race. The annual competition, held on the first Saturday in May, ends the 2-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. We can’t forget about the college basketball buzz around the city about 2012 NCAA Basketball Champs University of Kentucky Wildcats, the only team with the most all-time wins in the history of college basketball.
