For centuries, horse race betting has been a favorite leisure of elite men and women. These gamblers stake their money on the final placement of the horses taking part in the race. However, such gambling is not allowed in some race tracks just like in Springdale’s renowned Carolina Cup and the Colonial Cup Steeplechase in Camden South Carolina since the law was passed in 1951.

Since horse racing has become bigger and bigger in the coming years, gambling on horses is allowed where most tracks offer parimutuel betting in which the money is pooled and shared proportionally among winners just like in the Kentucky Derby—the biggest horse race in the world.

The Kentucky Derby, or what other calls as ‘The Run for the Roses” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” is ranked as one of the most important thoroughbred races in the world and the first to form the Triple Crown Series. This race has been the longest running since 1875 even continuing through two World Wars and the Great Depression which makes it a valuable jewel in the racing world.

This is a two-week race held annually that culminates on the first Saturday of May in Louisville, Kentucky of United States. It is still a Grade I race just like the Pegasus but for three-year-old runners at a ten furlong distance of a one and quarter mile run (2km) in Churchill Downs.

This is a race the so-called classic generation which means we have not yet seen the very best of them. It rises up the excitement on race day where people on their big hats, mint juleps and collective voice in “My Old Kentucky Home” exchange their opinions on who they think is the best on the run.

Since the Kentucky Derby is the first on the list, winners of the race will make its way to the Belmont Stakes and Preakness Stakes to win the Triple Crown. 15 young three-year-old contenders sprint their way for the standing $2 million dollar purse for this derby.

Kentucky, just like any major race have a live TV coverage courtesy of NBC Sports attracting about millions of viewers for this two-week event. But if you are someone who is always on the run, you don’t need to get to a tv to watch it as it has an online broadcast at TVG.

Paul Nicholls

Paul Nicholls  Paul Nicholls has won the National Hunt Trainers’ Championship ten times and Leading Trainer Award at the Cheltenham Festival six times. Since 2009, Nicholls has had to play second fiddle to the likes of Nicky Henderson, Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott at the Gloucestershire course, but victories for Pacha Du Polder in the Foxhunter Challenge Cup and Le Prezien in the Grand Annual Challenge Cup in 2018 took his career total to 43 Festival winners. Consequently, despite some lean years, he remains the third most successful trainer in the history of the Cheltenham Festival, behind only Mullins, with 61 wins, and Henderson, with 60.

 

Nicholls saddled his first Cheltenham Festival winner, Flagship Uberalles, in the Arkle Challenge Trophy in 1999 and wasted no time in adding his second, and third, Call Equiname in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and See More Business in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Those three winners were sufficient to win him his first Leading Trainer Award and he won again five years later, when Azertyuiop in the Queen Mother Champion Chase was one of four winners for the yard.

 

Nicholls won again in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, with three, four, three and five winners, respectively. In 2007, he saddled Denman to win the RSA Chase and Kauto Star to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup, in 2008, Master Minded to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase and Denman to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup and, in 2009, Master Minded to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase again, Big Buck’s to win the Stayers’ Hurdle and Kauto Star to regain his crown in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Of course, Big Buck’s would go on to win the next three renewals of the Stayers’ Hurdle and was inducted into the Cheltenham Hall of Fame in 2018.

Barry Geraghty

Barry Geraghty  Notwithstanding the phenomenal record of compatriot Ruby Walsh, Barry Geraghty remains the second most successful jockey in the history of the Cheltenham Festival with an impressive tally of 36 winners. The first of them was Moscow Flyer, trained by Jessica Harrington, in the Arkle Challenge Trophy in 2002 and he rode at least one winner at every Cheltenham Festival for the next 14 years. In that period, he won each of the ‘championship’ races – Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase, Stayers’ Hurdle and Cheltenham Gold Cup – at least twice and was crowned leading jockey at the Festival twice, in 2003 and 2012.

 

He won the Champion Hurdle twice, on Punjabi in 2009 and Jezki in 2014, the Queen Mother Champion Chase five times, on Moscow Flyer in 2003 and 2005, Big Zeb in 2010, Finian’s Rainbow in 2012 and Sprinter Sacre in 2013, the Stayers’ Hurdle twice, on Iris’s Gift in 2004 and More Of That in 2014 and the Cheltenham Gold Cup twice, on Kicking King in 2005 and Bobs Worth 2013. He also won the Arkle Challenge Trophy five times and the Triumph Hurdle four times.

 

Following the retirement of Sir Anthony McCoy in April, 2015, Geraghty became the retained rider for the most successful owner ever at the Cheltenham Festival, John Patrick “J.P.” McManus, and the following season carried his familiar green and gold colours to victory aboard Ivanovich Gorbatov in the Triumph Hurdle. Geraghty missed the 2017 Cheltenham Festival through injury, but resumed business as usual in 2018 with two more winners for J.P. McManus. He had to work hard to land odds of 8/15 on Buveur D’Air in the Champion Hurdle, but there were not many easier winners all week than Prezien – one of five runners owned by J.P. McManus – in the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Cup.
