The Kentucky Derby is one of the wealthiest and most anticipated horse racing events in the United States. It is part of the legendary U.S. Triple Crown Series, followed by the Preakness Stakes and the final leg, which is the Belmont Stakes. It takes place every 1st week of May every year in the popular racing field of Churchill Downs, Kentucky.
Although many sports fans are looking forward to this grand horse racing event, this year was not a great season for the said horse racing tournament.
