Kentucky Derby 2019The first Saturday in May is a big day in Coral Bay… the Kentucky Derby! The Kentucky Derby is a stakes race for three-year old Thoroughbreds, held annually in Louisville Kentucky on the first Saturday in May.  The 2 km “run for the roses” is also known as “the fastest 2-minutes in sports.”


Run every consecutive year since 1875, the Kentucky Derby is the first leg of the US Triple Crown (followed by the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes).

The Virgin Islands were represented well at the 139th Kentucky Derby in 2013, with both Kevin Krigger and Victor LeBron of St. Croix competing.
