KENTUCKY DERBY 2011: Oaks and Derby Day Schedules (and unofficial Bourbon post)

New, 21 comments

Below are the race-by-race schedules at Churchill Downs for both Friday (Oaks Day) and Saturday (Derby Day).  All times are Eastern.

Churchill Downs will be offering the usual assortment of betting options, with a Pick 5 added to the mix this year.  The Pick 5 will start on Race 7 on both Friday and Saturday and is a $0.50 minimum bet.  Nice.  Very nice.

UPDATED: This post will be our unofficial Kentucky Derby Bourbon post.  Got a bourbon you like on Derby day...or any other day...chime in.
