Text on Panorama:
This panorama, photographed by James Blakeway, captures a quintessential moment during the Greatest Two Minutes in Sports®. Since its inaugural running in 1875, the Kentucky Derby® has grown into an American cultural event unlike any other. Many of the traditions celebrated during this weekend at Churchill Downs and across the country, incorporate the visible signs of this special occasion and the romantic ideals of the old South. From the roses that blanket the winner’s neck, to the music of “My Old Kentucky Home” played at the start of festivities, to the popular Mint Juleps that have hosted the event from the beginning – this is more than just a horse race.
