The Kentucky Derby is the most unbelievable of all American pure blood horse races. It happens each year at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, on the principal Saturday in May. The Run for the Roses is the longest-running game in the United States, dating to 1875, and quickly infers customs that have gotten permanently connected to it: knockout caps for the ladies, a reference to the time where it started; mint juleps; wagering; the melody “My Old Kentucky Home;” a cover of roses for the triumphant pony (which gave the race its substitute name) and famous people. Maybe one of the most dearest customs is its whiskey chocolate pecan pie.!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
