Kentucky Derby Postponed

Fans of the “Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” are in for a long wait. Churchill Downs will be postponing the 146th Kentucky Derby until September 5, according to reports from multiple media outlets in Louisville, where the race takes place.

 

The first Run for the Roses was held in 1875 and is usually held on the first Saturday in May.

 

The Preakness and Belmont Stakes, the other two races in the triple crown, have not announced what their plans are.
