The Kansas Race
The Kansas race is one of the most prominent races in the world. It is held every year on the first Saturday in May, and it always draws a large crowd. This year, the race will be held on May 4th at 6:00pm EST.
The Kentucky Derby
The Kentucky Derby is a horse race that is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. The competition is a Grade Istakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds at a distance of one and a quarter miles (2.0 km) at Churchill Downs. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kg) and fillies 121 pounds (55 kg).
The Preakness Stakes
The Preakness Stakes is an American flat thoroughbred horse race held on the third Saturday in May each year at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a Grade I race run over a distance of 9.5 furlongs (1⅛ miles) on dirt. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kg); fillies 121 pounds (55 kg). It is the second leg of the American Triple Crown, followed by the Belmont Stakes, and preceding the Kentucky Derby. First run in 1873, the Preakness Stakes was named by a former Maryland governor after his colt Preakness won the dinner party bet and then went on to win the first running of the race.
The Belmont Stakes
The Belmont Stakes is the third and final leg of the Triple Crown of horse racing. It is held five weeks after the Kentucky Derby, on the first Saturday in June at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
