Beautiful thoroughbred racehorse Paul Jones w/ jockey Ted Rice after winning the 46th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in 1920. The winner received a purse of $30,375. Tomorrow at the 140th running, it's estimated that the winner will receive approx $1.2 million.
at Churchill Downs, 700 Central Ave, Louisville, KY
Anne Diamond Who's considered the winner? The jockey or the owner of the horse?
Patti Hunt If you get to Churchill Downs...there is a wonderful museum that showcases all the derby winners. Plus take one of the behind the scene tours! I did and traveled with a guide throughout the entire grounds, even the stable [external link] was fascinating.
