2019 Kentucky Derby Miscellaneous Photos

Date: 05/09/2019

While the disqualification of Maximum Security in the Kentucky Derby is probably the most memorable thing from this week, it was far from the only interesting thing to happen. The weather was pretty varied, with some sun on Friday but rain starting in the afternoon on Saturday that was of course heaviest in the 2 hours before the Derby, leading the third muddy Kentucky Derby in a row.

Here is a selection of photos from Derby week that you may enjoy. Be sure to click the small version to see it full size.
