You'll want to visit the Kentucky Derby website for a complete overview of the 2018 Derby Day Schedule, but we thought it might be helpful to include a few details here. You can place a bet as early as 10 AM, followed by a long list of activities leading up to "the most exciting two minutes in sports." From watching the Garland of Roses arrive at the Clubhouse Gate to the Military Armed Forces Enlistment Ceremony, there's a lot to be seen at Churchill Downs on Derby Day. Of course, the event that gets worldwide attention is the Run for the Roses, which is scheduled to begin at approximately 6:32 PM.


If you're interested in knowing a little about the 2018 Kentucky Derby Contenders, has a very informative list. Magnum Moon, Good Magic, Audible, Noble Indy and Vino Rosso top out Brisnet's list, although there are other sources that vary somewhat as to who is listed in the top slots.  Either way, this year's contenders for Derby 144 look primed and ready, and this is sure to make for an exciting race.
