It is called Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby is also know as the Run for the Roses. This is the first race of the Triple crown and it is held each year on the 1st Saturday in May.

The Louisville Jockey Club Course was where the first Kentucky Derby was held. That was the original name of the Churchill Downs racetrack, where the Derby still is being held. Whatever the name, the world-famous grounds are located in Louisville, Kentucky.

Aristides was the name of the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 17, 1875. He was a blood-red chestnut. He was prepared for the Derby by African American trainer Ansel Williamson, a posthumous inductee into the Racing Hall of Fame in 1998. He was ridden by African American jockey Oliver Lewis [1856 - 1924], a subsequent Kentucky businessman in Lexington.

The favorite horse is Dialed In for the 2011 derby, but favorites don't all ways win. That's who I would put my money on, Dialed In.

Fusaichi Pegasus [foaled April12, 1997] was the winning horse in the 2007 Kentucky Derby. His winning jockey was Kent Jason Desormeaux [February 27, 1970]. The horse's unusual name, which combines his owner's first name and that of the winged horses of ancient Greek legends, often is shortened affectionately to 'FuPeg'.

No. It has always been held in Kentucky, not Tennessee. Hence the name "Kentucky Derby".
