After a controversial Kentucky Derby, the second stage of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes, is ready to go on May 18.
Next Saturday, May 4, the gates will fly open at Churchill Downs and the 19 best three-year-old thoroughbreds in North America - and one from Japan - will race for the 2019 Kentucky Derby. They'll be running 1 1/4 miles on the Churchill dirt track, chasing a total purse of $3 million and the first leg of the US Triple Crown of horse racing.
