Sit home, relax, and watch the slowest 8 minutes in sports: The Kentucky Turtle Derby

Studio 814

Slow and steady wins the race!

The 146th Kentucky Derby was supposed to be at Churchill Downs tomorrow — but it’s been postponed until September due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, Old Forester Bourbon is hosting a “2020 Kentucky Turtle Derby,” otherwise known as “the slowest eight minutes in sports.”

You can watch it on Old Forester’s YouTube channel at 7pm.

Eight turtles – with names like “Seattle Slow” and “Green Mamba” – will start in the center of a circle and the first to cross the outer ring wins.
