The 2013 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 4th, at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The "Run for the Roses" has been held every year since 1875, and is sure to draw a crowd rain or shine. The first leg in horse racing's Triple Crown is regarded as one of the most popular events in the sport, and if you're lucky enough to be viewing it in person this May, there's a lot more to know about the experience than what they show on television.
