Today is the 138th Kentucky Derby from Louisville’s Churchill Downs. It’s the most exciting two minutes in sports. This time of year is the only year I watch horse racing. Fancy hats, mint julep and a wager or two are the common themes of this event. NBC TV begins its coverage at 4 today with post time at 6:24 PM this evening.
The Kentucky Oaks is the race right before the main event and its post time is at 5:45. A full day of racing provide some great excitement for horse racing fans.
