Trump arrived at Churchill Downs at 6 p.m. for his $75,000-per-person event. His arrival was concealed from the general public and the press. The event is part of his ongoing battle with his home state’s Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell. He was led inside the track via a side hallway previously used by caterers and employees, where his entourage greeted him with an American flag and a Kentucky flag.
Before he came, the staff closed drapes to keep the press and public at bay, while FBI operatives in camouflage with automatic guns stood guard.
Whispers about Trump’s arrival circulated among the crowd, which had been backed up for twenty minutes. ‘Trump, Trump, Trump,’ some exclaimed. Others appeared to be upset by the wait.

The event is spanned over two weeks in the month of May. The tradition of the Kentucky Derby has been followed for 146 years. It started on May 17th 1875. This sport is also known in the United States as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” because the race only spanned two minutes.
The Tradition of the Kentucky Derby had been uninterrupted since when it started in 1875. When all Professional sports leagues cancelled their events due to worldwide pandemics or the great depression or even during the world war the Kentucky Debry continued its tradition. It wasn’t even stopped for the worldwide COVID pandemic. The Kentucky Derby was merely rescheduled to be conducted in September 2020, never for this prestigious tradition to be broken. The Derby recently took place on 7th May 2022 and former President Donald Trump was in attendance.
