The Kentucky Derby is a horse race held annually in Louisville, Kentucky on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. The race is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds with a length of one and a quarter miles (2 km) at Churchill Downs. Just about everyone in the country knows perhaps the most impressive horse that ever lived – Secretariat. Today, we want to share the moment he won the Kentucky Derby in 1973 before going on to complete the Triple Crown.

That gives me goosebumps every time. Good luck to all in the Kentucky Derby this Saturday.
