Why do people make such a big deal over the Kentucky Derby?

I mean seriously: they get all dressed up to wear a fancy hat for a 2 minute race. Good lord, I’ve heard of people getting dressed down for orgasms and micro dicks that last less time 😂😂

Superb Opinion

  • You can think of it as a party or a holiday - why do people make such a big fuss over those things? It's because it's a tradition, and a big tradition for people in the area (for whom horses and related industries used to be their lifeblood) as well as for people involved in horse-racing. It's a fun event (not just the main race, but the whole weekend, which is full of events and celebrations and traditions), with lots of gambling and lots of mint juleps being consumed.

    Of course, you don't need to care about any of that if you don't want to - but a lot of people DO want to, for various reasons that I've already touched on.

  • I don't get the fascination either, or with horse racing in general, but then there are people who would say the same thing about a Boxing match, where one guy gets K/O'd in the first round..

    Horses for course I guess, if you pardon the pun!

Most Helpful Girls

  • I think a lot of people are bored and need something shared to get hyped up about. It’s just like when people celebrate Mother’s Day on that day when there are 364 other days you could also celebrate your parents. People need festivals to give themselves purpose and significance, especially in a social media type of way.

  • Hey watch it, you. That shit is our pride and glory.

    • Well the losers will be glue or fast food meat soon enough 😂😂

    • Don't say that

    • I’m joking 😂😂

  • You ain’t seen lady’s day at Cheltenham or York or half a dozen races

    let’s face it there is a lot of meat around

    • Or the Grand National at Aintree

  • "The most exciting two minutes in sports"

  • Horses, breeding and racing were pillar industries in the south. The tradition goes back nearly 150 years. The industries may have given way to mechanization, but the money is still there. I once read that a century ago everyone had horses, but only wealthy people had cars. While today everyone has cars, but only rich people have horses.

  • People can be proud to live in Kentucky.

  • I really have no idea. The horses are so doped up they don't even know what day it is. Everyone there is a grifter or a faker.

  • Seems to have a reputation aka a standing 🏆

  • LMFAO at the description. I thought this was only a thing in the UK and countries with monarchies or countries that used to have monarchies, it is the same with the Grand national, people getting poshed up and wearing fancy hats. the so called well behaved better people, you should see the photos after though.

    The 'gentlemen' throwing punches at each other and the 'ladies' falling around drunk.

  • You realize how many people attend? It’s only the largest event in horse racing.

  • I have heard it is just a good reason to drink a mint Julip ( I have never tried one)

  • It's about getting fucked up in a fancy place and gambling like a degenerate from my understanding

  • It's traditional, it's a race, there's a lot of gambling and money involved, it's big business for the town. I'd rather watch that over football or basketball

  • How big is a micro-dick on a horse?
