Kentucky Derby Day

Queen Elizabeth II
of England,
and her husband,
Prince Philip, will attend
the "Run for the Roses" at
Churchill Downs in Louisville,
Kentucky, this afternoon.

This is the first of three
races by thoroughbred horses
held in May-June every year--
the other two being the
Preakness and the
Belmont Stakes.
The winner of all three
receives the "Triple Crown."

The Nashville, Tennessee,
Steeplechase races are
also being held on this
Saturday morning,
May 5, 2007. The royal
visitors may fit
attendance at this
event into their
schedule, too.
