Kentucky Derby 2012

Known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” for the approximate amount of time it takes all horses to cross the finish line, the Kentucky Derby is now held annually on the first Saturday in May and draws close to 155,000 hat wearing, mint julep drinking, fried chicken eating horse racing fans to its legendary stands and infield.

I'll Have Another, ridden by Mario Gutierrez, won the 138th Kentucky Derby and the 137th Preakness. There hasn't been a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. Can I'll Have Another have another win at Belmont on June 9th to claim the Triple Crown? Check out the 2012 Belmont post time and contenders.
