On Saturday, May 6, an estimated 25 million fans in the US and millions more around the world will tune into what’s been labelled, “the most exciting two minutes in sports” and the first leg of the Triple Crown, the 132nd Kentucky Derby at Louisville's Churchill Downs. The 131st Preakness Stakes runs at Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore on May 20, and the 138th Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park in Long Island, N.Y., on June 10 rounds out the Triple Crown.
