The most exciting two minutes in sports
Few sporting events are as exhilarating as the Kentucky Derby - and our hotel is just moments away from the action. The Derby is the first leg of the famed Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing events, and is the most attended North American horse racing spectacle. Each year, approximately 150,000 fans descend upon Churchill Downs' historic two-kilometer track for this world-renowned event.
Located under seven miles from the track, Sheraton Louisville Riverside Hotel provides an excellent home base for guests visiting the area to experience the Kentucky Derby.
