The Kentucky Derby is this weekend and yes it might be in Kentucky but you can still participate right here in the Tri-Cities.

You can watch and wager on the Kentucky Derby Saturday at the Sundowns Horse Racing Track at the Benton Franklin Fairgrounds.

It's time to dress in your finest and have your lady showing off her fanciest hats!

The wagering window opens up at 10 AM on Saturday for the 145th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and you can pick your horses to win right here in the Tri-Cities.

There will also be contests and fun for the entire family including prizes for the best Kentucky Derby Hat.

You can get more details about horse racing at Sundowns here and make sure to enjoy your Mint Julep as your horse crosses the finish line.
