TIDBITS INVESTIGATES THE
KENTUCKY DERBYby Kathy Wolfe
And theyre off! Every year, the first Saturday in May marks The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports, the annual Kentucky Derby. Tidbits offers some fascinating facts about the Run for the Roses, a contest for three-year-old thoroughbred horses held every year since 1875.
Construction on the racetrack now known as Churchill Downs was begun in Louisville, Kentucky in 1874. It was the brainstorm of Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., the grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Clark leased 80 acres of land from his uncles John and Henry Churchill, and raised $32,000 for constructions costs by selling membership subscriptions to the track for $100 each.
The first Kentucky Derby was held in May of 1875 before a crowd of 10,000 spectators. Fifteen three-year-old thoroughbreds pounded around the track and the contest was won by a chestnut named Aristides. The original race was 1.5 miles (2.41 km), compared to todays 1.25 miles (2.01 km). Aristides accomplished the distance in just under 2:38. In 1896 it was determined that 1.5 miles was too long a distance for three-year-old horses so early in the spring, and the race length was shortened.

A man was walking on the beach one day where he found a bottle half buried in the sand. He decided to open it. Inside was a genie. The genie said, I will grant you three wishes and three wishes only. The man thought about his first wish and decided, I think I want 1 million dollars transferred to a Swiss bank account. POOF! In his hand he held a Swiss bankbook with a $1 million balance. Next, he wished for a red Ferrari. POOF! There was the car sitting in front of him. Finally, he asked for his final wish, I wish I was irresistible to women. POOF! He turned into a box of chocolates.

KENTUCKY DERBY (continued): When race fans showed up for the 1895 event,
they were met by a brand-new grandstand featuring the Twin Spires. A 24-year-old draftsman designed the Spires, which have become a familiar landmark to the Derby crowd.
