      Today, the first Saturday in May is the running of the Kentucky Derby, also known as the 148th Run for the Roses’ and the first ‘jewel’ in the ‘triple crown’…..What are the other two ‘jewels’ in the triple crown and in what order and where are they run?

      Not particularly for the horses, but for the people. I knew some people who went to the big infield gathering and found themselves in the midst of a drunken brawl. It seems many people don’t go to watch the race at all, and just like to fight. They were promising a big crackdown, but I don’t know what they did.
