The 2016 Kentucky Derby, which has been dubbed the "most exciting two minutes in sports", will be taking place on Saturday, May 7th.

This race, which started way back in 1875, will be run on a 1 1/4 mile dirt track. The Kentucky Derby, which is considered the most prestigious race in horse racing, will have a guaranteed purse of $2 million.


There are no clear favourites to win this year's Kentucky Derby - four horses (Nyquist, Exaggerator, Mohaymen, Brodys Cause) are all considered to be solid bets to win this year.
