The Kentucky Derby by the Numbers


The Kentucky Derby has been called the “most exciting two minutes in sports” and it takes place this Saturday, May 4th, in Louisville, Kentucky.  Today’s infographic from WalletHub reminds us that at this year’s event (the 145th year) over 120k Mint Juleps will be served, 90% of female attendees will be wearing a great big hat, and over $238 million will be wagered while watching this big equine party.  And let’s not forget that about that big moment than when the horses move onto the track, the band strikes up “My Old Kentucky Home” and the crowd starts to sing…..Indeed…..Happy Friday!!!
