Don't miss the fastest two minutes in sports.


In 2012, my family had the opportunity to visit Churchill Downs... home of the Kentucky Derby. Memories of walking past Barbaro's statue, the museum inside that is so rich in history, to the grandstand where the first leg of a potential triple crown winner emmerges. "The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports" or "The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports"  is also called "The Run for the Roses" for the blanket of roses draped over the winner.

If you plan on only catching one horse race in 2014, it would be wise to make that event the Kentucky Derby. This marquee Triple Crown race is truly one of a kind, blending tradition, celebrities gambling and many more factors to create a recipe for the most exciting two minutes in sports.

Coverage begins at 3 p.m. Post Time is 5:24 p.m. on NBC.


The Kentucky Derby is followed by the Preakness Stakes, then the Belmont Stakes.
