2010 Kentucky Derby

Mint juleps and mud marked the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. A wet weekend in Louisville didn't stop the Derby hats from coming out, and it didn't stop Super Saver either. Jockey Calvin Borel again rode the victor, his third win out of the last four races. ( 17 photos total)
