    The Riders up call has been made, this year by Martha Stewart, at the 150th Kentucky Derby, and the Call to the Post has been played. Just about 10 minutes remain until the expected start of the Kentucky Derby and while the odds have shifted slightly throughout the day, but Fierceness has been the favorite since the morning line odds came out earlier in the week, after a 13 1/2 length victory at Gulfstream Park in the Florida Derby. Sierra Leone has had the second best odds all day as well continuing a trend from all of Derby Week.

    The horses aren't the only head turners at the Kentucky Derby. The Run for the Roses is as much about being seen as seeing the races.

    The 150th Kentucky Derby is an excellent time to celebrate the Run for the Roses, and who better to remember first than the G.O.A.T. Secretariat, who's 1973 track record of 1:59 2/5 still stands.

    On this Kentucky Derby day, here’s your reminder that Secretariat was faster than any horse you’ll see today. The year is 1973 and this is his track record run. Untouched for over 50 years. The GOAT.
