The Kentucky Derby is the first racing event in the Triple Crown and it is the true, secret “jewel of the crown”. This race is one of the most famous horse races worldwide, and therefore, both serious and recreational horseplayers enjoy horse racing betting during this event. The Kentucky Derby is held every year at Churchhill Downs, which lies just three miles outside of downtown Louisville in Southern Kentucky. This race is held on the first Saturday in May and is accepted by many as the best “two minutes in sports”. Because of its popularity, horse racing betting in the Kentucky Derby can yield some of the highest payouts.
