According to KentuckyDerby.com, the Kentucky Derby isn’t just a horse race, it’s also the greatest 2 minutes in sports. I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with that statement, but I do think it’s a super interesting event and one of my favorite parts of the event is learning the horses’ names. They just keep getting more and more interesting. At the time of this writing, Firenze Fire has 50-1 odds of winning, but there are several horses running that have much more intriguing names.
