Last weekend the historic home of the Kentucky Derby hosted another exciting year for the Breeders' Cup. The 2011 Breeders' Cup at Churchill Downs marks the end of a two year run at the Kentucky race track. Patrons of Churchill Downs have had the opportunity to be a spectator at two of the 4 majors horse races for the last 2 years. Next year the high stakes event will move to Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California for the sixth time.
The Breeders' Cup may be moving on and the excitement for 2011 may be over but it is a great time to start thinking about the 2012 Kentucky Derby. We are just under 6 months away from the annual running of the oldest continuous sporting event in the country. Get your extravagant hats ready for the trip of a lifetime to go see the top thoroughbreds compete in the most famous horse race in the world. The first leg of the Triple Crown is scheduled to held on Saturday May 5, 2012. The name of this event carries so much history and there is no mistaking the cultural importance that the Kentucky Derby generates every year.
