About The Kentucky Derby
Y’all, it’s that time of year again – the Kentucky Derby!
For those of you who don’t know, the Kentucky Derby is a prestigious horse race held annually at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.
This year, the race is taking place on May 6th, 2023. That’s right: get up early for King Charles’s coronation day, and then roll right into the races!
Let’s take a step back and talk about the history of the Kentucky Derby.
The race was first held in 1875, making it one of the oldest sporting events in the United States.
It’s also the first race in the Triple Crown, a series of three horse races that also includes the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: who’s favored to win this year?
Well, the odds are constantly changing, but as of right now, Forte is the 3-1 favorite and Tapit Trice is 5-1, while Angel of Empire rounds out the top three 2023 Kentucky Derby horses at 8-1.
But you never know – anything can happen on race day!
(We don’t know who will win the horse race, but you’re sure to find the winning Kentucky Derby memes right here! Bet on it.)
Over the years, the Kentucky Derby has become much more than just a horse race. It’s a cultural event that’s celebrated across the country.
And one of the things that makes it so special is the drinks that are served. The official drink of the Kentucky Derby is the mint julep, a cocktail made with bourbon, sugar, water, and fresh mint. It’s a refreshing drink that’s perfect for sipping on a hot day at the races. Or in your living room while watching it on TV. Truly, this drink works in both places.
But the Kentucky Derby isn’t just about the drinks – it’s also about the fashion.
Men wear seersucker suits, bow ties, and fedoras, while women wear brightly colored dresses and elaborate hats. It’s a chance to dress up and show off your style.
I’m watching almost as much for the hats as we are for the horses.
Overall, the Kentucky Derby is a beloved event that brings people together from all walks of life.
Whether you’re a die-hard horse racing fan or just someone who enjoys a good party (and managed to recover from Cinco de Mayo), there’s something for everyone at the Kentucky Derby.
So grab your mint julep, put on your best outfit, and get ready to watch the most exciting two minutes in sports! But first, check out the funny Kentucky Derby memes we harvested for you.
