Guess a group of horses ran somewhere in Kentucky fairly recently. I'd rather watch my dog chase a rabbit or the mail carrier, than attend a horse show of any kind. Maybe if they held that derby every five years, more people would develop an interest.

It's the most famous horse race in the world and is celebrated in KY for several weeks.

But people have no interest in it. 🙄

I once took a date to our farm back in E TN. It was midnight, and I had packed a full picnic, so that we could both enjoy the meteor shower, but five big show horses absolutely refused to leave us alone within the field. They smelled the treats that I had packed and became eagerly persistent, then downright aggressive forcing our departure, because we feared that we would end up trampled to death. Didn't pay a dime to see that.

It looked as though the jockey was using both hands on that right lead. Never have seen a horses head pulled that hard in a race.
I thought he was too boxed in to be able to make it to the front and no fouls called.
