Saturday's Kentucky Derby will be interesting to watch for people in the Capital Region. Not only is it the biggest horserace of the season, but there are a couple of local ties to the "Run For The Roses". One is a horse and the other is a trainer.
Today marks the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby and first leg of the triple crown. Post time is at 6:24 and will be broadcast on NBC. The Capital Region is closely tied to horse racing as the city of Saratoga Springs hosts the summer meet beginning in July
Saturday marks the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville Kentucky. Two female trainers and one female jockey have the chance to break down the gender barrier and win the "Run For The Roses".
