Very newsworthy was the last Kentucky Derby held on Saturday, May 7, where Rich Strike won, ridden by Venezuelan jockey Sonny León.
And it is that, according to information received, the dispute of said competition had so much interest that it generated a collection of more than 270 million dollars, including the sponsorship of television.
On the other hand, and to give an idea of the great interest aroused by the important competition, it was found that approximately 15,8 million people watched the race.
And it is that horse racing in the United States is one of the sports that the public follows the most, and if we refer to the Kentucky Derby, we must take into account that it is one of the most important races in the world and that millions follow of people through television in the mundo hípico.
We wonder then that if Rich Strike had been ratified for the Preakness, how many people will be waiting to see that race? Unfortunately, we will not be able to know it due to the absence of the winner of the 1st of the triple crown.
