1. Kentucky Derby
Put on your fancy cloth, wash your sportscar to make it shiny and prepare the cash in the suitcase and make your way to the Kentucky Derby. There are almost two hundred thousands spectators annually gathered at Churchill Downs for this phenomenal race which has been a tradition long since the 18th century. Even though the race took less than 5 minutes which is the fastest being 2 minutes, the race has earned the title of the Greatest Race Under 2 Minute. When the winner crosses the finish line, the horse will often be decorated with hundreds of roses. Getting a seat in front is most likely impossible without millionaire acquaintances or siblings, so you might need to sit with other thousand visitors and if you are lucky, you might see a little bit of the horse galloping through the race.
2. The Preakness Stakes
Since the beginning of the 18th Century, the race already had tremendous changes but several traditions remain. A shiny silver reward will be given which was crafted by Tiffany in the 1860s, while the winner wrapped his horse in a delicate blanket made of the Maryland State Flowers Black-Eyed Susans. Tickets for under a hundred dollars can be purchased but you have to mingle around with all sorts of horse racing enthusiasts. There is even a cheaper ticket which you can access a free beer refill all day and enjoy the activities being held before the race starts
