From the iconic Twin Spires that overlook the track's famous homestretch to the potent mint juleps that infuse Derby Day with "spirit," traditions are an important part of the Derby experience. Every year, the Kentucky Derby Nation of fans looks forward to observing these storied rituals leading up to the "Greatest Two Minutes in Sports."

"When it comes to horse racing's premier event, the competition isn't limited to the track itself. The Kentucky Derby and its sister event, the Kentucky Oaks, are the only sporting events that are also fashion events. Derby attendees spend as much time and money on their race-day apparel as they do at the betting window -- maybe more!"
