This year, the Kentucky Derby resumed its normal running date and allowed spectators to participate. Racing fans flocked to Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY, sporting their fancy hats, dresses, suits, and matching ties. Twenty horses broke from the gate with their eyes on the $3 million dollar prize. Yet, only one can be the Kentucky Derby winner. Bob Baffert’s Medina Spirit, a horse purchased for $1,000, claimed the win in the 147th Kentucky Derby.
All throughout the country there are different costs of owning a horse. In addition to this, there is also a lot of options on where to care and board your horse. If you are “living the dream” you happily have a ranch and are living out your dreams eating breakfast watching your favorite four legged family members roam.
