The Kentucky Derby is a world famous, Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbred horses, held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States. Known as one of the most prestigious thoroughbred races in the world, the race caps the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. Often referred to as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” for its short duration, the race has also been known as “The Run for the Roses” aptly named for the blanket of roses that are draped over the winner. Apart from the race itself, there are many traditions which race-goers partake in; the Mint Julepan iced drink consisting of bourbon, mint, and a sugar syrup is the traditional beverage of the race. Burgoo is the staple food of the Derby as well; its mixture type stew of chicken, beef, pork, and vegetables is an authentic taste of Kentucky food.
