The Kentucky Derby was scheduled to take place this weekend before it was postponed to September. But fans can still tune it for another historic race – one that takes a bit longer.
The Kentucky Turtle Derby, billed as the “slowest eight minutes in sports”, is still on for this weekend, featuring turtles like Seattle Slow, Sir Hides-A-Bunch, and Galapa-GO!.
The race, which actually takes place in Chicago, will air on YouTube at 7pm on Saturday – with Kentucky Derby announcer Larry Collmus calling the action.
Do you plan on tuning in? Which turtle is your pick to win?
