Remembering The Running Of the Kentucky Derby Through Gifts

It is called, “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports,” “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” and “The Run for the Roses. The Kentucky Derby is the first race in the Triple Crown. Three-year-olds have been running in this race in Louisville, Kentucky since it first began in 1875. From fine horses to fine wine, people find a way to celebrate the annual event including parties. To make your celebration special, why not commemorate it by giving out Kentucky Derby Gifts?

What Is So Special about the Kentucky Derby?

If you have to ask this question, you obviously know nothing about horse racing in the United States. The Kentucky Derby is the most famous horse race in the United States. Since 1875, it has held the interest of horse racing fans around the world. Having never missed a year, it has become steeped in tradition. From the roses that are presented to the winner to the mint juleps that are drunk at the race and at Kentucky Derby parties, the race (and by extension the day) has assumed mythological proportions. Even the horses are famous. Northern Dancer and Secretariat are names that are renowned even beyond the racing world. They are mentioned in novels and are depicted in films.

Having a Derby Party

The race is the central focus of this Sunday in May. Yet, for those who cannot attend Churchill Downs or want to celebrate their favorite horse, jockey or trainer, a party is ideal. The theme is already taken care of. The drinks are dictated – mint juleps, bourbon, and other bourbon-based drinks. Serve them on Kentucky Derby themed coasters. The game can be watched or revisited on a large screen television. All that remains are the special favors.

Kentucky Derby gifts are something you may want to include. These party favors can be as elaborate or simple as you wish. They can even be the prize for a game, wager or similar happening at the party. For example, sanctioned Derby gifts may be lapel pins in the shape of a horse. A gold one may be for first place in a game; silver for second and bronze for third.
