Fortunately, that’s not going to happen as the race is already confirmed to take place at the Churchill Downs racetrack, which is located at 700 Central Ave, Louisville, KY 40208, United States, just a minute away and southwest of the Kentucky Derby Museum.
Here is further information you need to know about the Derby:
The 2020 Kentucky Derby Date
The 2020 Kentucky Derby will be going down on Saturday, 5 September 2020. And by the way, the subsequent Monday, which is on 7 September will be a national holiday, Labour Day to be precise. To that effect, I hope your employer is going to allow you to be off work from the preceding Friday evening until Tuesday so you can have fun.
Do not forget that this race is going to be attended by a greater crowd than it has been done in the previous years, thanks to the upcoming national holiday. Because of that, I can only imagine how electrifying with tens of thousands of spectators it’s going to be. Better secure a vantage point so you can catch the action live and more clearly without any form of obstruction by purchasing a ticket early.
