Derby Day at Churchill Downs

I really don't care about horse racing, except on the days that the Triple Crown races are run.

As always, the first Saturday in May is the running of the Kentucky Derby. Today we'll find out which horse will be the Triple Crown contender for 2007.

There hasn't been a Triple Crown winning horse since 1978, which I believe is the longest drought in Triple Crown history.
