Kentucky Derby 2018 – Everything You Need to Know

“When is the Kentucky Derby?

Every year, the “Run for the Roses” is held on the first Saturday of May. And that day this year is Saturday, May 5. On Friday, the annual running of the Kentucky Oaks, which  is a race for 3-year-old fillies (female horses), takes place.

What’s the prize?

There will be 20 horses in this year’s race, with $2 million as the prize.

What time does the race start?

The post time for this year’s race is scheduled for 6:34 p.m. ET, but the race isn’t set to start until 12 minutes later at 6:46 p.m. Again, better to tune in early, than late, since the race only lasts two minutes. You don’t want to miss it. ”
