The Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs
This panorama, photographed by James Blakeway, captures a quintessential moment during the Greatest Two Minutes in Sports. Since its inaugural running in 1875, the Kentucky Derby has grown into an American cultural event unlike any other. Many of the traditions celebrated during this weekend at Churchill Downs and across the country, incorporate the visible signs of this special occasion and the romantic ideals of the old South. From the roses that blanket the winner’s neck, to the music of "My Old Kentucky Home" played at the start of festivities, to the popular Mint Juleps that have hosted the event from the beginning - this is more than just a horse race.

Welcome to the world's most famous race track! From James Blakeway's breathtaking Worldwide Panoramas collection comes this mid-race view of Louisville's legendary horse racing venue on its biggest day of the year, as the Thoroughbreds gallop down the back stretch. In front of your eyes, you can see the action unfolding: early leader Danzing Candy out front with a two-lengths lead, but eventual winner Nyquist gaining fast as he passes Gun Runner on the outside. The horse racing action is incredible, and the scene of Churchill Downs packed with fans on a glorious spring day, is pure perfection! Ideal for the wall of anyone who attended that historic 2016 race, has been to the Derby before, or has a dream of one day making it to the Downs for the big day. A truly spectacular piece for your wall! Perfect for home, office, stables, bar or restaurant!
