The Kentucky Derby is called “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” It’s attended and watched by over one hundred thousand people each year, and even if you weren’t watching this past Saturday when it was run, you probably know at least a few facts about the derby. You almost certainly know it’s a horse race and that there’s a starting line and a finish line. You’d know that the race is run on a track. Everyone likely knows that the fastest horse and jockey crossing the finish line is the winner, and that there’s a fair amount of betting on who will be the winner.
I seem to remember a horse called Secretariat.
