Kentucky Derby History and Traditions

History of The Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is one of the most oldest tradition in not just horse racing but in the sports world all together. The First Kentucky Derby took place May 17, 1875 and the excitement around this race was very evident from the beginning. On this day there were 15 jockeys that took to the track and 13 of them were African American. Over 10,000 people attended to watch the race and the winner of the first Kentucky Derby was a horse by the name of “Aristides” who was rode by Oliver Lewis. It is held every year at Churchill Downs in Louisville Kentucky and was originally a mile and a half but in the late 1800′s it was shortened to a mile and a quarter. The song “My Old Kentucky Home” still is the trademark song of the Derby and is played every year. The Kentucky Derby now takes place on the first Saturday in May and the excitement starts early in the year and gets more intense as it approaches. Read more »
