The Kentucky Derby, an annual Grade 1 stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbred horses, is the crown jewel of Churchill Downs and located in Louisville, Kentucky. The race is approximately one and one-quarter miles, roughly 2 kilometers, and is known by its fans as “the Run for the Roses” for the cloak of red roses that is draped around the victor.

The first leg of the US Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby is followed by the Preakness Stakes (held on May 19, 2012, in Baltimore) and the Belmont Stakes (held on June 9, 2012, in New York).
