Northern Dancer ridden by Bill Hatack prances around the track at Churchill Downs, winning the Kentucky Derby in two minutes. The two minutes set a record in the Kentucky Derby, as Northern Dancer is the first horse bred in Canada to win the run for the roses. Northern Dancer would win the Preakness Stakes but fell short in Belmont in the pursuit of the Triple Crown.
