|Hi Pearl & Silver
Yes, horses start racing at 2 years old. I hope you will be able to watch on Wednesday (5-6pm EDT) the post position draw at Churchill Downs. It's on NBCSN.
PLEASE NOTE: Horses are racing at 40 MPH.
The most important prep races, in both readying a horse for the Kentucky Derby and in determining who the favorites will be, take place three to six week in advance. There are 26 of these races. Three of the most popular are:
Florida Derby, Gulfstream Park, Hallandale FL
Santa Anita Derby, Santa Anita, Arcadia CA
Wood Memorial Stakes, Aqueduct, Jamaica NY
The Blood Horse magazine is a good reading choice for information to determine your winning pick.
This years (2013) winners are: Verrazano (Wood Memorial), Goldencents (Santa Anita), and Orb (Florida Derby).
