Saddle up for Kentucky Derby 2019

Place your bet, grab your hat and cold Mint Julep, and don’t miss a minute of Kentucky Derby Day.

The Kentucky Derby returns to Churchill Downs, Saturday, May 4. “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports" has been running every year since 1875. The Kentucky Derby is part of Derby Week and live racing begins on April 27. Events include Opening Night, Champions Day, Dawn at the Downs, Thurby, Kentucky Oaks, and concludes with the legendary Kentucky Derby. And head off to the races with Signature Transportation. You can reserve car services to Kentucky Derby events with Signature Transportation.

The Kentucky Derby is a full day of racing. The gates to the Derby open at 8:00 AM, and Mint Juleps and drinks are available from 8:00 AM to approximately 8:10 PM. Watch the Garland of Roses arrive at the Clubhouse Gate at 9:45 AM. Betting starts 30 minutes before the first race at 10:00 AM. The Kentucky Derby race starts at 6:50 PM. Enjoy a day at the races and reserve all your transportation needs with Signature Transportation.

Remember that getting to Churchill Downs on Derby Day can be an issue. Roads are closed, parking is limited (and expensive), don’t count on being able to find a taxi cab, and then there’s the surge pricing with ride share services to deal with. Parking at Churchill Downs is sold well in advance, so be prepared when traveling. Central Avenue from Crittenden Drive to Taylor Boulevard are closed to unauthorized traffic, and combined with 170,000 attendees, traffic jams are common.

Private car and shuttle services are the best way to get to Churchill Downs for a day at the Kentucky Derby and/or the Kentucky Oaks.
