Kentucky Derby Week Kicks Off With Parade

Kentucky Derby week is underway.

The Pegasus Parade was fully attended yesterday for the first time since 2019. It was also the first time the founding event of the Kentucky Derby Festival was held on a Sunday. The parade is typically held on the Thursday before the Kentucky Derby.

Meanwhile, Derby hopefuls worked out at Churchill Downs over the weekend. Epicenter, Taiba [[ Tie-buh ]], Zandon, Mo Donegal, White Abarrio and Messier [[ Messy-eh ]] are among the top contenders for Kentucky Derby 148.

There are expected to be 20 horses in the field. The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports is set for Saturday.
