1998 Kentucky Derby results

Dateline: 5/05/98


The weather was a million times better than last year which made the day much more enjoyable. The track was lightning fast after all the rain in the days prior to the Derby which was a nice surprise after mostly expecting to see it run in the mud. Although you really get more from the races at home than you do in person, there is nothing like the experience of actually being there.
