They’re Off and Running... Enjoy The Kentucky Derby!

Posted by Winspire

Kentucky Derby Horse Race 2012

Winspire would like to raise our Mint Juleps and toast the auction winners who will be attending this year’s race by purchasing one of our 2012 Kentucky Derby packages at a charity fundraising event. Click Here to see our Derby packages for 2012.

Known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” for the approximate amount of time it takes all horses to cross the finish line, the Kentucky Derby draws close to 155,000 hat wearing, mint julep drinking, fried chicken eating horse racing fans to its legendary stands and infield each year.

Got a favorite horse??  Hopefully it will not be placed in post positions 15. . . in the 136 years of running, no horse has ever won from this starting spot.
