This year is also the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby, so as you can tell, folks in the bluegrass been doing this for a loong time. :) The two weeks prior to Derby, the city kicks off with fireworks and all manner of festivities to celebrate the fastest 2 minutes in the sport of kings.
There's a Great Steamboat Race with the Belle of Louisville taking on the Delta Queen, a parade with floats and horses that travels downtown, a Great Balloon Race with hot air balloons, a golf challenge for hole in one, a bed on wheels race, and on Friday, The Oaks, also known as the Lillies for the Fillies, a stakes race for 3year old female horses.
Fillies can run in the Kentucky Derby, but only three fillies have ever won the Derby. Can you name them?
