The 137th annual Kentucky Derby is an American tradition that is known throughout the world as the most exciting two minutes in sports. The nail-biting drama of watching three-year-old thoroughbred horses racing around iconic Churchill Downs facility is something one must put on their “Bucket List”. The people watching is also fun, as well-dressed spectators clad in elaborate hats more fitting for a royal wedding drink Mint Juleps along “Millionaire’s Row”.
Many breeders dream of having their thoroughbreds compete at the Kentucky Derby and work hard in achieving that goal. They also appreciate hard working trucks like our Ram 3500 Heavy Duty that has plenty of horses under the hood to pull their trailers filled with Colts, Geldings and fillies to the race tracks. This is just one of many reasons we are the Official Vehicle of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.
“The Ram Truck brand is proud to be affiliated with the great tradition of the 137th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs as we deeply admire the prowess and strength of the great thoroughbreds that grace the starting gate,” said our president and CEO Fred Diaz. “This year’s participation marks a milestone for the Ram Truck brand as we move forward with our partnership for the second year.”
We’ll be getting in the spirit and the fun of this prestigious event that dates back to 1875. Look for Ram to be part of what makes Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby “the place to be and be seen!
So grab your hat, walking stick and best suit, and watch this weekend’s annual Kentucky Derby and see our Ram “Run for the Roses”!
