Some Fact and History about the Kentucky Derby

Horse racing in Kentucky dates back as far as 1789, when the first race course was laid out in Lexington.

In 1797 Kentucky's first Jockey Club was founded at a formal race meet, then was reorganized as the Lexington Jockey Club in 1809.

“The Commons” the men who organized this race meet, including Kentucky Statesman Henry Clay, also formed the Commonwealth's Jockey Club. The organization was named the Kentucky Jockey Club in 1809.

It was 66 years later in 1875, that Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as "Home of the Kentucky Derby."

The track would eventually become known as "Churchill Downs." The first reference of the name Churchill Downs came in an 1883 Kentucky Derby article reported by the former Louisville Commercial.

By 1920, the Kentucky Derby had become the best known race in North America and it was attracting the top three-year-olds from all over the country.

Except for 1879 through 1895, when it was 1 ½ miles, the Kentucky Derby has always been run at 1 ¼ miles. In 1937, the track was incorporated as Churchill Downs. More Kentucky Derby history information
