Kentucky Derby
Experience the 148th Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. You'll stay Four Days/Three Nights at the Hyatt Regency Louisville, located in the heart of downtown Louisville, within walking distance of many restaurants, attractions, the Fourth Street Live Entertainment District and ten minutes from Churchill Downs and the Airport.

The Derby is the first leg of the American Triple Crown, followed by the Preakness Stakes, and then the Belmont Stakes. Of the three Triple Crown races, the Kentucky Derby had the distinction of having been run uninterrupted for 144 years previous to 2020. It is dubbed "The Run for the Roses", stemming from the blanket of roses draped over the winner. It is also known in the United States as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" or "The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports" because of its approximate duration.
